This High percentage for mixed marriages was disclosed in figures made available to the Post and opinion from statistics compiled at the state Board of health. The percentage of mixed marriages ranged during the four year period from 46 to As High As 51. The state Board of health started gathering statistics on mixed marriages in the late 1950s. Research expert prof. Erich Rosenthal of Queens College n.y., who has conducted surveys on mixed marriages in Iowa and Washington d.c., is making a detailed analysis of intermarriage in Indiana. His report has not yet been published. In 1960, out of a total of 175 marriages involving jews there were 81 intermarriage for a percentage of 46.3. Fifty three of the mixed marriages were jewish men with non jewish women and the other 28 were jewish women with non jewish men. The following year 183 marriages involving jews were listed including 90 mixed marriages for 49.1 per cent. Fifty nine of the mixed marriages were jewish men with non jewish women and 31 jewish women with non jewish men. In 1962 the percentage of mixed marriages exceeded 50 per cent. There were 104 such marriages in a total of 201 for 51.7 per cent. Sixty eight jewish men married out of their Faith while 36 jewish women married non jews. In 1963 there were 114 mixed marriages in a total of 232 for 49.1 per cent. Seventy three jews married non jewish women while on the distaff Side 41 jews married non jewish men. The state Board of health obtains its marriage statistics from each record of marriage which according to state Law must be forwarded to the Board in Indianapolis on a monthly bases. The record of marriage is not to be confused with the application for marriage License which is a much More detailed form that must be filled out by both partners when they first go to a county clerks office. Then follows the usual three Day waiting period before a marriage can actually be performed. The record of marriage including the religion data is normally filled out just before the Union is made. It is attached to the actual marriage License and marriage certificate and is later detached and forwarded to the state Board of health authorities. Only the record of marriage provides religious data on newlyweds. The state Board of health insists its records on mixed marriages is As accurate As any available although officials concede that minor errors could be possible. But no records Are kept on whether one marriage partner converts to the other s religion after the Union is consummated. Such information would be obtainable Only from the individuals involved. In the surveys conducted by Rosenthal mixed marriages in Iowa ranged from 36.3 per cent in 1953 to 53 per cent in 1959, his analysis on the greater Washington data revealed that the mixed marriage rate rises from about one per cent among the first generation the foreign born immigrants to 10.2 per cent for the native Borns of foreign parentage to 17.9 per cent for the native Borns of native parents a it the third and subsequent generation. So says or. Cecil Roth orthodoxy depicted god in jewish Art Jerusalem a further revision in the traditional concepts regarding the jewish attitude towards Art was seen by prof. Cecil Roth speaking to the Congress of jewish studies which closed Here recently. Hie famous historian now on the faculty of bar Tian University. Told the scholars that not Only human figures were used in synagogue decorations but a series of discoveries indicates that even so daring a representation As that of the deity can be seen in Many jewish places. He listed these As a bearded figure sculpted on two Central european synagogue perpetual lamps the Sarajevo haggadah a dutch Tombstone and two manuscripts a one emanating from the highly orthodox Community of Frankfort on Oder in the 17th Century. His conclusion was that so Many occurrences could hardly be accidental. He said we must begin to recognize that there was a tradition of god representation.
