                     I could not, would not, on the Net

                        It isn't good to intermarry
                                      
                          I would not co-officiate
                      I wouldn't even approve a date!

   If you really insist on going through with the intermarriage after
   everything you have read and you are in the United States, Frank F.
   Smith wrote on soc.culture.jewish that you might want to contact
   [5]The Rabbinic Center for Research and Counseling
   ([6]http://www.rcrconline.org/) in Westfield, NJ (908-233-2288
   (automated message); 908-233-0419 (real person), 908-233-6459 (FAX)).
   Founded in 1970, the Rabbinic Center for Research and Counseling is
   the first organization established to promote research on
   intermarriage and to serve the needs of intermarrying and intermarried
   couples. The Rabbinic Center provides a list of rabbis who officiate
   at intermarriages, conducts and promotes research on intermarriage,
   offers premarital and marital therapy for intermarried couples and
   their families, and presents a variety of programs specifically geared
   to the needs of intermarried couples. Their [7]list of rabbis is
   available at [8]http://www.rcrconline.org/rabbi.htm. To obtain the
   list by mail, send your name and address with a check for $20 to the
   Rabbinic Center, 128 East Dudley Avenue, Westfield, New Jersey 07090.
   In addition to the list of over 290 rabbis, you will receive some
   articles on intermarriage and on the programs the Center offers for
   intermarried couples. The list will be sent by return mail. Please add
   $10 if you want the list sent by fax or email and add $20 for Federal
   Express. For telephone information on the List of Rabbis Who Officiate
   at Intermarriages, call (908) 233-2288. Note: All rabbis on the list
   are members either of the Central Conference of American Rabbis or of
   the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association; the list is updated
   monthly, and that some rabbis have conditions under which the
   officiate (such as raising the children as Jewish).
