||A discussion of Jews-Christian intermarriage by Leo Rauchmann, who is also the author of Die deutsche Sprache im jüdischen Gottesdienst. Beginning with Biblical references, the consideration of intermarriage in Talmudical and Rabbinical literature is followed by the view on intermarriage in "modern" theology. The social and religious aspects of intermarriage are also considered. Pages 36-39 contain a lengthy poem entitled Christenthum and Judenthum (Christianity and Judaism). An appendix follows entitled: Der ächte Ring.
In 1910 the Jewish Encyclopedia offered the following statistics on intermarriage: It is very difficult to obtain any statistical information as to the number of Jews who marry outside their faith; but some of the Continental governments have made inquiries on this point … During 1900 in Prussia there were 4,799 Jews who married Jewesses, and 474 Jews and Jewesses who married outside their faith ("Zeitschrift für Preussische Statistik," 1902, p. 216). In Bavaria during the year 1899, while 416 Jews married Jewesses, 31 Jews and Jewesses married outside the faith ("Zeitschrift des Königl. Bayer. Statistischen Bureaus," 1900, p. 259). Information of the same kind is obtainable for some of the chief towns, as for Berlin, where in 1899 there were 621 Jewish marriages as against 229 intermarriages ("Statistisches Jahrbuch," 1902, p. 61). Similarly in Budapest for 1898 there were 1,238 Jewish marriages as against 146 intermarriages ("Statistikai Evkönyve," 1901, p. 82). In Vienna in 1898 there were 110 mixed marriages as against 847 purely Jewish marriages; while in Prague there were only 6 as against 354 ("Oesterreichisches Städtebuch," viii. 283, Vienna, 1900).
