Brunch Talk with Paul Golin

Executive Director of the Society for Humanistic Judaism

“Who’s a Jew?:  Intermarriage and the Future of Judaism”

“Intermarriage is good, period,” Golin states. “There’s only one Jewish denomination that can make such a claim with no strings attached. Explore how intercultural marriage — often referred to as ‘interfaith marriage,’ in which one spouse is Jewish and one is not — isn’t the threat that the organized Jewish community historically made it out to be. The question then is what comes next, when intermarriage is seen instead as an opportunity for meaning and growth, and previously restrictive definitions of Jewish identity are broadened to include all who might benefit.”

Join ACE for a conversation facilitated by Paul Golin, who has two decades of experience working on the issues around Jewish intermarriage as an advocate for inclusion, and is himself one of the few intermarried executive directors of a Jewish communal organization.
