Intermarriage: When Love Meets Tradition (VHS) Email This Page

This penetrating documentary focuses on five young couples who face the problems and challenges of love, marriage, and raising children in an interfaith relationship.

The couples in Intermarriage were all participants in a program for interfaith couples sponsored by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. Led by a Rabbi, this course was designed to provide a Jewish orientation for couples who were not closely affiliated with the Jewish community. These men and women were filmed and interviewed over eight weeks as they examined their commitment to each other in light of their commitment to different religions.

Intermarriage is intended to enable interfaith couples to discuss the conflicts and concerns of their relationships. It is an essential film for the couples and their families and friends faced with the problems of integrating two religious beliefs into one marriage. Raising crucial issues about life-long beliefs and the personal and public expressions of faith, Intermarriage should be seen by everyone who cares about their commitment to their spouse, their family, and their religion.

Tape also available with 13-minute 'trigger' film This Great Difference focusing on the experiences of one interfaith couple and designed to initiate discussion. Also from filmmaker Ilana Bar-Din.
