Since April 2006, "In the Mix" has appeared monthly in The Jewish Week. The first and only regular newspaper feature by, for and about intermarried Jews, "In the Mix" draws on journalist Julie Wiener's own experiences raising a Jewish family together with her lapsed Catholic husband, but the column also incorporates extensive interviews, reporting and research from the field. It has addressed everything from conflicts over circumcision, to Julie's mother-in-law's Catholic funeral to an ongoing interfaith divorce battle.
While continuing with the column (archived at http://intermarried.wordpress.com and also appearing in the Jewish Week's Opinion section), we are adding an "In the Mix" blog so that you can always get a "Mix" fix.
Julie is an associate editor at The Jewish Week, where she also writes about education and food. Her work has also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Associated Press and The New York Sun. She lives in Jackson Heights, Queens, with her husband and their two daughters.
