New flicks with celebs in interfaith relationships and from interfaith backgrounds, plus their baby news!Go To Pop Culture
For the first time in the three-year history of doing our December holidays survey, JTA has done an entire story about the survey! Frankly, I can’t say enough about what a terrific piece of reporting Sue Fishkoff did. It presents the survey results in a balanced, nuanced, contextual light, and is clear about the survey’s limits and its strengths. Fishkoff was also careful to make clear that we don’t encourage interfaith families to have Christmas trees, but we do say that the simple existence of a Christmas tree in a house does not prevent children from being raised Jewish.
In addition to Julie Wiener’s discussion of the survey in her column last week, there have been stories on the survey in the Tulsa World and the Portland Press-Herald and the Detroit Free PressÂ article was reprinted inÂ theÂ News-DemocratÂ (Belleville, Ill.), theÂ Reading EagleÂ (Penn.), Providence Journal, theÂ Florida LedgerÂ (Lakeland),Â the Chattanooga Times Free PressÂ (Tenn.), theÂ Centre Daily TimesÂ (Pa.), the Bradenton Herald (Fla.) and theÂ Monterey County Herald. And there may be more press coming in Philadelphia and Atlanta.
In addition, President and Publisher Ed Case was recently interviewed for “Your Morning” on CN8, the Comcast Network,Â andÂ “Busted Halo with Father Dave Dwyer”Â on Sirius Radio. We also got a nice shout-out from Miss Conduct in her column inÂ theÂ Boston Sunday Globe Magazine. (She called InterfaithFamily.com a “terrific site”–thanks, Miss C.!)
