His friends were all Jewish as he grew up, and he attended March of the Living.

He is the last Jewish male in our family, since my one and only cousin is a female and I am an only child.

My partner is the closest thing to home I have ever found. — healing the world — isn’t something he says, but something he practices.

Our biggest clashes are less about religion and heritage and more about my addiction to Netflix telenovelas.

I made our children aware of their culture and heritage.

Our son was bar mitzvahed and attended Hebrew school for five years.

Not an interfaith, interracial, mixed, different, special, unique relationship. One that, when we get married, cannot be officiated by an Orthodox or Conservative rabbi, or be recognized in Israel, because I’m Jewish and he’s not. What weirds me out isn’t that our marriage wouldn’t be recognized in a vast number of Jewish institutions.

It’s that here, in America, my relationship is viewed as a sparkly goldfish in a bowl that no one wants to take home.

We raised our children in a home that observed all the major Jewish holidays.

He finally agreed to the Bris, but said, 'I'm sure you'll understand when I take the baby to be baptized.' I was shocked.

Now I'm not sure our marriage is going to survive." The video shows these couples – none of them religious – describing how the major obstacle in their marriage is the issue of Jesus.

My partner and I are some weird local version of the Lovings in the Jewish community. On the flip side, there are those in the Jewish community who think my relationship is somehow single handedly responsible for the decline and eventual annihilation of the Jewish people. Imagine having that kind of power (and pressure) when it comes to who you binge Netflix with. And because of that, and the fact that we became a minority by being murdered, exiled, and persecuted for 2,000 years, there’s a fear that intermarriage will water down Jewry till it no longer exists. They convert to a religion that feels more like home. I get why some young Jews really only want to date within the community. Sometimes other Jews are easier to relate to, and you don’t have to teach them things like why Hanukkah is actually not that big of a deal, for crying out loud, stop marketing it like Christmas! And that won’t make my future children any less Jewish.

No matter how many times it happens, I still find myself appalled when a so-called “modern” Jew tells me that I’m hurting my people by dating outside the faith. And for some people who date outside the Jewish community, that does happen: They marry someone non-Jewish, have kids, don’t raise them Jewish in any way, and those kids have kids, and they aren’t Jewish, and before you know it, no one in the family is Jewish or has any idea they were Jewish in the first place. Sometimes they want to have a Jewish household with a Jewish spouse, and celebrate traditions and rituals that they have in common. That’s the key thing here: My kids will be Jewish no matter what.
