Within Reach: Response to a Challenge

By Jacob B. Ukeles

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1991

Outreach to intermarried couples should be on the communal agenda, but such outreach efforts should have very low priority for limited Jewish identity-building resources. Instead, the Jewish community and the family of the Jewish spouse should welcome the non-Jewish spouse into the community. There should be a unified, understandable, accessible framework for conversion, followed by total acceptance of converts.
