Intermarriage: A Catholic and a Jew

Question: My stepdaughter, a Jewish girl, is marrying a very fine Catholic man. My wife and I are looking for a Rabbi in the (withheld) area who will perform the ceremony for them. The groom wishes the actual ceremony to be held jointly with a Catholic priest. The wedding ceremony and the reception are to be held in a hotel so there is no “religious property” involved (i.e. not in a church).

Answer: I can see that you are sincerely concerned with your step daughter’s best interests, and that you want to do the right thing Jewishly, seeing as you want a rabbi to perform the ceremony.
