Why Did Jews Marry Christians? #general


Cliff Karchmer
 

Hello.  A colleague with a Jewish ancestor told me she heard that her Jewish grandmother from Lvov married a Christian (Russian Orthodox) to preserve wealthy family assets.  Could that have been a legitimate reason for intermarriage in the 19th century?  If so, what were the advantages that could compel a Jew to protect assets in such an extreme way?  thanks for your advice. Feel free to reply to me directly:  ckarchmer@...
 
Thanks,
