Select­ed from scores of inter­views across the coun­try, eleven inter­faith cou­ples relate the many ways in which Jew­ish-and-Gen­tile cou­ples have attempt­ed to rec­on­cile their cus­toms and hol­i­days, learned to under­stand their in-laws, and raised their children.

Abra­ham J. Edel­heit is an asso­ciate pro­fes­sor of his­to­ry at Kings­bor­ough Com­mu­ni­ty Col­lege (CUNY) and the author, co-author, or edi­tor of eleven books on the Holo­caust, Zion­ism, Jew­ish and Euro­pean his­to­ry, and Mil­i­tary affairs. His most recent pub­li­ca­tion appeared in Armor mag­a­zine, the offi­cial jour­nal of the US Army Armor and Cav­al­ry Command.
