Prior to the creation of Israel in 1948, approximately 800,000 Jews were living in lands that now make up the Arab world.
Of these, just under two-thirds lived in the French and Italian-controlled North Africa, 15–20% in the Kingdom of Iraq, approximately 10% in the Kingdom of Egypt and approximately 7% in the Kingdom of Yemen.
This presents an obstacle with regard to inter-faith marriages, unless the couple is very careful about balancing the needs and obligations of each partner.
Some areas, for example in the case of a Muslim husband and Jewish wife, would simply be academic such as kosher/halal eating.
One can argue, therefore, that we should not forget the Old Testament teachings (book of Ruth) about foreigners when having to deal with newcomers because if we do, we are being hypocritical to Gods word. Once a person has decided to convert, the proselyte must begin to learn Jewish religion, law and customs and begin to observe them.
Is still the motto, as it still works just fine : However, in the spirit of the book of Ruth from the Old Testament we were given a playback by which to deal with others from a foreign area who are new to our surroundings.
Is the couple to write a ‘custom’ contract that includes the necessary elements of both Islamic and Jewish law, or write two separate contracts that do not contradict each other?
Clearly there can be no traditional ‘wedding ceremony’ unless it was a joint venture approved by both an Imam and a Rabbi- and then it, by necessity, would have to be a *very* secular-style affair to avoid each partner taking part in another faith’s religious ceremony.
One Orthodox Jew I know went so far as to state that intermarriage is accomplishing what Hitler could not: Its own stateowned bank..
It also has the lowest foreclosure rate and lowest credit card default rate in the country, and it has had NO bank failures in at least the last decade.

Brother Nathanael: first, the Mishnah may have been applying the same logic to mixed marriages as it had applied to other mixtures ( Kilayim).
Just my two shekels and two drachma’s worth of thoughts (this coming from a Muslim man who is considering converting to Judaism- but is married to a Christian wife…how’s THAT for complicated)!! This is actually VERY funny because in the Torah it is FORBIDDEN for a Jew to marry a non-Jew, however, in islam, a muslim can marry a Jewish woman, but a Jewish man cannot marry a muslim woman. My advice is not to do it, and keep in mind that no matter if you’re a muslim or not, she is a Jew, all of your children will be Jewish, as per Jewish law. We must encourage all sort of Interfaith marriage around the world and this is the final way that we can calm down this unrest world forever. Men broken down the bullshit laws of God and embrace Love. Once day Human being reject their fucking religious identification like Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jews, Christ etc & will be just a good human being in our own earth.
