Two Jews Can Still Be a Mixed Marriage: Reconciling Differences Over Judaism in Your Marriage

Azriela Jaffe, Author Career Press $14.99 (224p) ISBN 978-1-56414-473-7
Different levels of commitment and observance can foster conflict even in a ""two-Jew"" marriage, says Jaffe in this perceptive, down-to-earth book. Jaffe begins by asking readers to examine their own Jewish background and to view their marriage as a merging of two spiritual journeys. She highlights some of the most prevalent marital conflicts that arise over issues such as holidays, purity laws and keeping kosher, using real-life couples as examples (she tells a very funny story about ordering shrimp on her first date with the kosher-keeping man who became her husband). A ""mixed Jewish marriage,"" Jaffe asserts, can be a blessing if both partners learn to respect their differences. (Mar.)
