This week The Forward, considered one of the most prominent Jewish newspapers in North America, carried an article about a recent Star Trek novel in which a Jewish character “intermarries” a Klingon. While this is yet another example of Jewish intermarriage in popular culture — think “The O.C.” on TV and “Meet the Fockers” on film — we would also love to see more coverage in the Anglo-Jewish press of actual Jewish intermarriages, where the issue is taken seriously…especially when it shows interfaith families that are successful at creating Jewish households or raising Jewish children.
In the meantime, we wish the best of luck to Starfleet Captain David Gold’s granddaughter, Esther, in her marriage to Khor (not pictured), son of the Klingon Ambassador to Earth.
