This afterword suggests some directions for future research. It argues that while scholarly and personal interest in the concept and practice of intermarriage has generated a substantial volume of literature, much more work needs to be done in this field. To truly understand Jewish–Gentile marriage, an examination of the Gentiles involved in Jewish intermarriages would seem important in order to draw a two-sided historical picture. Specifically, what is needed are inquiries into non-Jewish women who married Jewish men; the intermarriage experiences of Gentile men; historical analyses of Jewish men who intermarried; and comparative analysis of the advice literature generated over the years on the issue of intermarriage.
