A few years ago, I participated in a project that brought together Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scholars to talk about how our traditions think about “the stranger,” people outside of the tradition. We met face-to-face and also produced a volume of essays; mine was about intermarriage in the Jewish community. The volume came out last month, but I have always hoped that my piece would find an audience outside of academia.
I am therefore really happy that the Jewish Outreach Institute has excerpted my original essay on their blog (the published volume includes questions & my answers as well).
