Finding Harmony in Interfaith Dating

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/finding_harmony_in_interfaith_dating_20030822

There's a serious note to Oren Safdie's musical comedy, "Jews & Jesus" -- his own life. Safdie, 38, drew on his interfaith dating experiences to write the play about two religiously mixed couples trying to walk the fine line between tradition and emotion, love and guilt. Debra (Iris Bahr), the child of a mixed marriage, travels to Israel, where she meets an American rabbinical student (Griffin Shaw) struggling against the temptation of premarital sex.
