Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a terrific book dealing with the problem of interfaith marriage….Although the author is a rabbi, his advice and insights apply to all religions. His main message is tolerance and keeping the family ties with a child, even when he or she weds outside your religion. Reuben is a very wise man with sage advice or those facing this kind of crisis. The chapters deal with such things as interfaith dating, interfaith marriage, how to relate to your grandchildren, prejudice against strangers, how to stay in loving touch after your child leaves your religion, how to deal with your grandchildren being raised in another religion, how to handle your child's divorce, and many other important topics….This book will be very important for those facing the kinds of problems mentioned above. Reuben's advice is spot on. He has great insight into the feelings and problems that interfaith issues bring up and wisdom in how to deal with them."
