The recent wedding of Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky is a perfect opportunity to make observations and consider the implications of Jewish intermarriage in America today.
Analysis has begun as varying perspectives are reported. Some observed that Mezvinsky, a banker and son of two Jewish politicians, married out. Others see significance in that the daughter of a former U.S. president and the current Secretary of State has married in.
Steven Cohen, Hebrew Union College sociologist, remarked that the marriage is indicative of the "full acceptance of Jews by the larger society."1.
