Downton Abbey Portrays Reality of Interfaith RelationshipsBy Gerri Miller
Go inside Season 5 Episode 9 where the story line of Atticus and Rose's interfaith relationship comes to a head.Go To Pop Culture
We put out a new issue today on Differences in Interfaith Issues Through the Life Cycle. There’s a great piece by Rosalyn Shafter about why she and her husband decided not to tell his 95-year-old mother that he converted to Judaism; a nice little article from Paula Yablonsky, a Jew-by-choice, on how a driving lesson with her daughter seemed like the perfect opportunity to say a Hebrew blessing; an interesting analysis of the stages of marital development by family and marriage therapist Wendy Weltman Palmer; a superb–albeit slightly long–profile of Jorma Kaukonen, the founding guitarist for Jefferson Airplane, who was born Jewish but didn’t have anything to do with the religion until he married a non-Jewish woman; and, just because we know what you like, an Interfaith Celebrities column with goodies about Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ben Stiller and Scarlett Johansson.
