商品の説明

内容紹介

Any marriage is an adventure, but for partners with different religious backgrounds, the journey is sure to offer some unexpected twists. In Strangers to the Tribe, the journalist Gabrielle Glaser introduces us to eleven Jewish-Gentile couples, their families, and the many ways they have found to navigate their differences. Based on candid interviews across America with couples of all ages, these true stories will inform and inspire anyone embarked on an interfaith partnership. How do Rachel and Eric, a Jewish-Episcopal couple, raise their blended family? How does the Wong family honor all the strands of its Chinese-Hawaiian-Jewish heritage? Can Robin, an outgoing Jew who dreams of becoming a rabbi, and Lee, an introverted Anglo-Catholic, keep their partnership intact? Today, more than half of America's Jews marry outside the faith. Will intermarriage dilute American Judaism beyond recognition? Or will it inspire at least some secular Jews to renew their religious identity, bringing more people into the Jewish fold? These portraits, unsparing yet nonjudgmental, show how the answers are taking shape in interfaith America.

5つ星のうち 1.0 Tacha meshugana - A Melodramatic Comedy 2000/7/26
By S. A. Mears - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazon.co.jpで購入済み
I bought this book to read more about the subject of interfaith marriage. But I couldn't get into it. The writing style is overly dramatic and needlessly breathless. My fiance, a Shammas/Gabbai (I'm a nice Irish Catholic girl) started reading it and laughs so hard he loses his breath.
Perhaps it is that we have been friends for 25 years, before admitting that we were more, but the people described in this book need to get a life! Each relationship has a pattern of great angst and followed by silliness beyond compare.
I also felt that this book was patronizing at best to the Christian partner in the relationship. My fiance and I celebrate each other's deep faith, attend mass and synagogue together, and are comfortable with each other's past, our shared present and our hoped for future. It also needless blames the parents in the relationships. We are, and have been supported, by loving parents who want our happiness first.
I would not recommend this book to other interfaith couples and had I read it 25 years ago when we first met, I wonder whether we would ever have become friends, not to mention more.
Joe - Each night when I read parts of this book, and I use the term "book" loosely, it gives the love of my life, who knows more Yiddish than most born Jews, a headache. Sir Edward Coke, Lord Chief Justice of King's Bench and later a member of parliament once wrote " Every person skilled in his art or profession is to be believed." (Coke on Littleton, 125a (1628)). Such, in my professional opinion,is not the case herein.
As an interfaith couple involved in a 25 year relationship, posited upon friendship and mutual respect, we found this book most unhelpful and intellectually insulting.

5つ星のうち 3.0 One-sided, Yet Compelling Portrait 2000/4/13
By M. Harris - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
On my on going search for an balanced book on interfaith marriage, this was a disappointment. But if you're looking for a book on how to successfully convert to judaism, this book is for you. It is well written, and interesting, but as the characters continue to scroll by, you notice the uncanny similarity. Each couple is undecided about the religion they want their families to relate to, and consequently each couple decides either to convert to Judaism, or break up. Again, this book is a good read, but if you are looking for portrayals from all sides of the issue, look elsewhere.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Fascinating stories, but biased selections 2001/2/13
By カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
This book should be enjoyable reading to anyone with an interest in the subject of interfaith marriage. The storytelling approach -- focusing exclusively on individual couples' personal and family stories -- is both its strength and its weakness. It makes for interesting reading, as one meets and learns about each of the couples, their Jewish and Christian family backgrounds, the difficulties they have faced, and the choices they have made. However, the selection of couples and subject matter is biased and limited. As a child of Holocaust survivors choosing to raise my children in the Methodist faith in which my wife was raised, I kept waiting in vain to read of other couples who chose to actively practice Christianity (not just baptism, christmas trees and easter eggs). Ms. Glaser basically focused only on couples who chose Judaism or some very watered-down compromise. She also completely avoided the big faith issues: who was Jesus? does Christianity offer salvation not available through Judaism? can a Jew accept Christ, yet remain a Jew? how can intermarried partners choose to focus on the substantial theological and historical common ground between Judaism and Christianity, not the theological, cultural and historical differences? Notwithstanding these drawbacks, I found it well-written and well worth reading.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A powerful, beautifully written exploration of intermarriage 1999/5/21
By Review Central - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
I bought "Strangers to the Tribe" to give as a gift, but after a quick peek, couldn't put it down. I quickly cast aside the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir by Katharine Graham that I was reading, in favor of Gabrielle Glaser's elegant and purposeful prose. I was riveted by the characters she chose and their personal stories. Glaser's sense of detail is rich, and as she tells story after story of intermarriage, she is balanced, insightful and sheds new light on just what role religion plays in our uniquely American culture, a juggling act between the rational value of freedom of choice that we all possess, and the more emotional aspects of genealogy, historical memory, and destiny.
I was particularly touched by Glaser's own sweet story of re-embracing Judaism. After many decades of intermarriage in her family, Glaser marries a Jew, and formally becomes a Jew, a heritage which she shares with her children. As a Jew myself, whose extended family has been wrought by intermarriage, a smile came to my face. I like to think of it as a kind of Jewish karma. But Glaser's story is not a blueprint for how it should be. It happens to be her story. When it comes to the others, she's pure journalist.
"Strangers" is a great book for anyone, in any religion, about to embark on a journey of religious self-exploration, and should be required reading for anyone whose loved one marries or chooses to become a member of another religion. Filled with historical, sociological and religious fact, the reader will learn a lot, but perhaps more importantly, be imbued with a sense of humanity.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Informing, Interesting and Entertaining 2000/8/5
By カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
A realistic portrait of the struggle between love, family and religion. If you are looking for an in-depth account of how various couples have dealt with these intermingled issues, this is the book for you. Glaser, a dedicated journalist, tells her own story, and unbiasedly offers the reader several glimpses at how others have struggled with clashing beliefs. It is richly written, frank, and interesting. It is not, however, a "how-to" manual and one should approach each case with an open mind---as this author had intended for her audience.
