Their Jewish consciousness is very strong, however, and when intermarriage takes place between one of them and a Catholic Indian, the non-Jewish partner is usually converted to Judaism and brought into the congregation. ” Aimed primarily at building political and financial support for the University within American Jewry, the publication is very slick and appealing to look at.
