Non jewish dating jewish girl

Lianne, 41, took Jacob, her 4-month-old baby, out of his stroller and held him in her arms as we sat down for coffee on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.She and her husband, Mark, conceived Jacob just weeks after they were married about a year ago.The report states that there is a steep decline in marriage rates, with just over half (51%) of Jews indicating they are married, down from 60 percent cited by the 2000-2001 National Jewish Population Survey (NJPS).And of those Jews who are married, 44 percent are married to non-Jews.

It seems love and marriage are more elusive than ever before for Jewish women and men in America.I met Mark through a colleague and I realize I am so very lucky to have met him when I did.A few years ago, I expected to marry a yarmulke-wearing Sabbath observer.And like me, as Lianne reached her late thirties, still single and childless, she began to reconsider her more observant lifestyle when she found fewer men who were not put off by her career as a successful internist and/or men she found at her level of sophistication and worldliness.

She began to date non-observant Jewish men, dipping a toe in here and there, until, like me, she realized that secular Jewish men who wanted to marry Jewish women wanted to marry Jewish women who would eat in non-kosher restaurants and go out before the sunset on Saturday nights after the Sabbath ended.

Perhaps it's because Judaism is matrilineal; no matter whom we marry, our babies are Jewish by (Jewish law).
