“The melting pot in America succeeded for the most part far better than its proponents a century ago ever dreamed. Many forces have been at work to break down barriers and throw people into a less ghettoized society.”
Rabbi Olan does not judge those who choose to intermarry. Instead he discusses the problems resulting from intermarriage, and why intermarriage is more common now than in the past.
“The only thing in the world as strong as love is truth, and there are reasons to believe that as far as marriage is concerned they are different aspects of the same thing.”
