The Celebrity Exception

I have a question. Why is it that even among the critics of our work with those who have intermarried, whenBritney Spears and Isaac Cohen someone famous has intermarried, especially someone from TV, sports, or the movies, or is the adult child of intermarriage, we rush to claim him or her for the Jewish community? We also pay attention to stars who are dating someone Jewish, like Britney Spears. At JOI, we would welcome them anyway. We welcome anyone who has chosen to cast their lot with the Jewish community, irrespective of the path that has brought them here, or the configuration of their family—either current or the one in which they were raised. But for those who are critical of our work, we recognize it as “the celebrity exception.”
