Engag­ing in Jew­ish life can be a source of deep val­ue and mean­ing, not only for Jews, but equal­ly for their part­ners from oth­er faith tra­di­tions, and most impor­tant­ly for their chil­dren. Through his­tor­i­cal con­text, sta­tis­tics, per­son­al nar­ra­tives, and prac­ti­cal guid­ance Edmund Case, founder of Inter­faith­Fam­i­ly, out­lines three invi­ta­tions to engage in Jew­ish life that can be extend­ed to inter­faith cou­ples. He charts three road maps to adopt rad­i­cal­ly inclu­sive atti­tudes and poli­cies that treat inter­faith cou­ples and part­ners from dif­fer­ent faith tra­di­tions as equal and full par­tic­i­pants in Jew­ish life, and imple­ment pro­gram­ming designed to engage them. Togeth­er these approach­es can revi­tal­ize and sus­tain Jew­ish tradition.
