Intermarriage in the Bible

What does the Bible think of Exogamous Marriage (marriage outside of the group)? In this class we will look at different passages from the Bible regarding exogamy and see that there are conflicting views. We will also explore in depth, through the Biblical text and later rabbinic commentary, several exogamous Biblical marriages including those of Judah and Tamar; Ruth and Naomi's son Machlon; and Moses and Zipporah. Finally, we will explore our own views of intermarriage and how they relate to what we learn from the Bible.

The workshop meets four consecutive days, Monday - Thursday, 1:30 - 3:00.

With Rabbi Robyn Frisch, Director, and Wendy Armon, Director of Community Relations InterfaithFamily/Philadelphia
