Reviews
"Thompson's book is an original and powerfully suggestive intervention in the scholarship on intermarriage. Her argument is fresh and sound. She is particularly persuasive presenting her compelling ethnographic material." --Deborah Dash Moore "Frederick G. L. Huetwell Professor of History, University of Michigan"
"Jewish on Their Own Terms challenges the prevailing intermarriage paradigm by examining the lived experience of intermarried couples and analyzing the meaning and impact of intermarriage discourse in the Jewish community." --Bruce Phillips "Hebrew Union College"
"Thompson explores the ways in which individuals and couples directly involved in and affected by intermarriage define themselves, their perspectives on their own Jewishness, and their attempts at juggling the larger questions of individualism and communal responsibilities. Recommended."
-- "Choice"
"To read Thompson's work is to see clearly the imperative facing American Jewish institutions."-- "H-Judaic"
