The Intermarriage Handbook: A Guide for Jews Christians

Rate this book
The Intermarriage Handbook is a comprehensive, immensely practical self-help book for interfaith couples. Judy Petsonk and Jim Remsen interviewed hundreds of experts: psychologists, family therapist, sociologists, religious leaders--and especially the couples themselves. They discovered that the cultural differences between Christians and Jews are as significiant as their religious upbringings. Even if husband and wife are not practicing a faith, they may be feeling the strain of being in an interfaith relationship.

Filled with true-life anecdotes and useful step-by-step suggestions for a relationship at any stage, The Intermarriage Handbook is a book that couples can turn to again and again--for help with the questions that matter most.


First published January 30, 1991

The hardest job I ever had (other than raising my own children) was teaching (junior high, high school, junior college -- and preschool!) My own children have grown into admirable adults, and I like to imagine that the same is true of the children I taught.
I spent untold late nights as a newspaper reporter: Dayton, OH; Cherry Hill, NJ; Vancouver, WA.
I have traveled in South America, Israel,Scandinavia, Japan, Spain, Croatia, and various obscure towns in the USA.
I grew up in Altoona, PA.
I have seen the top of Alaska's Mount Denali just as the clouds lifted, and kayaked past a calving glacier.

I read this book and gave it to my parents and inlaws when we were married 13 years ago. I need to pull it out and read it again....
