Book Reviews of Still Jewish: A History of Women and Intermarriage in America

“Still Jewish is an important addition and corrective to the currently available American discussion of intermarriage.”


“McGinity’s story has great poignancy.

Still Jewish demonstrates how, from insular beginnings surrounded by anti-Semitism to

a world of inevitable intermarriage, Jewish women with gentile partners negotiated a new way to be Jewish in America.”



“The strength of McGinity’s approach is that she attends to the multiple factors that influence intermarriage: Religion, race, class, gender, personal choices, and the coexistent social and political currents that have influenced each phase of American history.”
