Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series
Naomi Schaefer Riley, Elizabeth Bernstein (moderator)
Tue, October 15th, 2013 | 6:30 pm

The rise of interfaith marriage isn’t the only way matrimony has changed within the last decade, but it does account for 45% of all marriages today. Esteemed journalist Naomi Schaefer Riley explores hard, yet important, questions about this understudied phenomenon and the impact it is having on America’s future.


Naomi Schaefer Riley is a weekly columnist for the New York Post, a former editor of The Wall Street Journal, and author of 'Til Faith Do Us Part: How Interfaith Marriage is Transforming America. Elizabeth Bernstein (moderator) is the author and creator of the “Bonds: On Relationships” column for The Wall Street Journal.
