Marry a Jew!

     If you are Jewish, and dating a non-Jew, read this 43-year-old American’s comment to my video on the importance of Jews marrying Jews.
He wrote:  
     “I agree that Jews marrying Jew is the most important message. My family line ended up non-Jewish because my grandparent’s son did not marry Jewish, and now everyone in the family is not Jewish in two generations.”
Gutman adds:
     Look beyond the sensual moment before you get involved and become attached. Do not throw away your 4,000-year-old family for a physical attraction. A central prayer that we say three times a day warns; “Do not follow your eyes and hearts for they will lead you astray.”[i]

[i] Shema Israel, Numbers 15:39
by Reb Gutman Locks on Mystical Paths

Why Marry Jewish? A question that so many young people ask. What happens if you meet someone non-Jewish who you love? What if that relationship is "perfect"?

Listen to this compassionate and thought-provoking response from Rabbi Manis Friedman, as he discusses the various aspects of this emotional issue.

Another important issue is the upbringing of children this marriage may create.

Much more important, even critical, in such an intermarriage is when the Jew is the father and the Gentile is the mother. In such a case the children are non-Jewish and the father's seed is cut off from its 4000 year geneology.
