Jews by Choice: A Quiet Revolution

By Lawrence J. Epstein

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), June 1986

The annual number of converts to Judaism is increasing, the author contends, and Jewish attitudes to proselytism are changing. The author discusses demographic implications of the proliferation of "Jews by choice", including the relationship of this issue to the intermarriage issue, and to issues of Jewish identity in modernity and the split between Orthodoxy and other denominations.
