Description: Within the Jewish community, no issue stirs as much debate as that of intermarriage, the common wisdom being that it represents a serious threat to the long-term survival of Judiasm. Dr. Gary Tobin argues that debating intermarriage is a red herring; the real threat is the Jews' unprecedented acceptance within a society where people choose their affiliations instead of being born into them. Even without intermarriage, Tobin maintains, increasingly fewer Jews will find reason to commit to their faith in such a climate. To reverse this decline, Jews need to rethink Judaism as something both born Jews and converts actively choose. The Jewish community needs to shift its focus from preventing intermarriage to building a community that attracts and welcomes converts.

Tobin challenges the Jewish community to get beyond its focus on preventing intermarriage and to embrace instead an active, joyous pro-conversion stance toward its non-Jewish friends and neighbors.
