I’ve tried talking to my daughter about this on a number of occasions, but invariably these deteriorate into shouting matches.
Also, my wife doesn’t care that this boy isn’t Jewish; in fact, I seem to be the only one in either my wife’s family or mine who opposes this relationship or that it could result in marriage, God forbid a billion times over. I love my daughter very much and I want a relationship with her, but I don’t know what to say or do to make her understand how important it is for her to marry within the Jewish faith.
Writer Menachem Kaiser argues in his essay "Anti-non-Semitism: An Investigation of the Shiksa" that "the pejorative connotation of 'shiksa' is fuzzy at best" because "'shiksa' today is used as often as not in winking self-reference".) is a pejorative but humorous word for an immature young girl or teenage girl.
However, I just can’t accept the fact that he isn’t Jewish.Egon Mayer, a professor of sociology at Brooklyn College who has studied interfaith marriage, said that he is not surprised at the trend.But while he's not "aware that there are any segments of the non-Jewish population that are specifically seeking a Jewish partner," Mayer said that "Jews have a fairly good reputation as marriage material." Often, non-Jews who log on say their interest lies beyond finding a Jewish mate.Despite the insistence of the early rabbis that converts are to be treated as if they had always been Jewish, for many people a converted woman will always carry with her a shiksa stigma.And, to my surprise, the stigma of being a shiksa is profound. Unlike me, she hadn’t dreamed of meeting someone Jewish and having a Jewish wedding.
