Where to buy it


Most Jewish communities continue to cite intermarriage as the most serious threat to Jewish continuity. Contrary to this view, The A–Z of Intermarriage reveals that intermarriage is a force for good in the lives of Jewish families and communities.


Written by Rabbi Denise Handlarski, an intermarried rabbi, The A–Z of Intermarriage is part story, part strategy, and all heart. Fun to read and full of helpful and practical tips and tools for couples and families, this book is the perfect “how-to” manual for living a happy and balanced intermarried life.

"If you are intermarried, have a family member or friend who is, or are interested in how intermarriage affects Jewish communities, this book has something to offer to you. The author’s optimism, good humour, and belief in each person’s capacity to find fulfillment will charm any reader willing to approach its important subject with an open mind."
