They are not religious so I don’t understand why they are so adamant about this.
I have never dated a Jewish guy, because the guys I am attracted to simply are never Jewish.
So spend some time thinking about how important your Jewish identity is to you.
Do you envision a life in which you are conscious of your Judaism, maintain some Jewish tradition, and/or raise your children as Jews?
You’re reading this page, which means that you have at least some interest in Jewish dating.
We see that you feel a connection to Judaism from the fact that you clicked onto this website!), or maybe you just think you would be more successful in dating and marriage if you joined the tribe (or a member of the tribe). In this series of pages we’re making it our mission to set you straight (no pun intended) regarding everything you want to know about this subject. For thousands of years, probably close to 4,000, since the patriarch Abraham began his grand nation building project, the Jewish People have stuck to their own when it comes to marriage.Whatever the reason we’ve decided to try and clarify things for you a bit. Sure things were a little fluid the days of the Patriarchs, but once Jacob and his 12 sons went down to Egypt for a few hundred years of bondage, and certainly after the Exodus, marrying exclusively Jewish was a requirement set in stone (literally).Countless sermons have been wasted on this topic, and its specter has launched numerous fund-raising campaigns for institutions that usually have little clue on how to creatively adapt to a changing community.As a result, many of our Jewish leaders and even major philanthropists are finding that their grandchildren are not necessarily being raised Jewishly.
If you do, then you should date only Jews, so that you will marry a Jew.
