Perhaps the upcoming wedding between Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former US President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham-Clinton to Marc Mezvinsky, a son of a disgraced former US congressman best exhibits the sad state of affairs and the internal devastation that plagues the Jewish People as a result of widespread intermarriage R”L.
Some reports add that the bridegroom will “convert to Christianity” for the wedding.
The daily Haaretz addresses the upcoming “mixed-faith marriage” as if such an occurrence is acceptable, or even praiseworthy or chas v’sholom. Some view is as desirable, since the young groom will be marrying into the “prestigious” American family.
Reports indicate the wedding plans have not been announced, with many anxious to learn who will officiate at the ceremony, and just how large a role the religion of the bride and groom will play.
Haaretz adds that Chelsea has been seen attending “religious services” with Marc at NYC’s Jewish Theological Seminary, the flagship institution of Conservative Judaism.
One can only hope that representatives of Jewish organizations will boycott the event, but sadly, one can be certain that many will be there, unwilling to miss the social spectacle that serves as witness to the modern-day plague that is rapidly destroying the Jewish People from within.
