Outreach vs. Inreach: An Unnecessary Dichotomy

By Hayim Herring, Kerry M. Olitzky

Big Tent Judaism / Jewish Outreach Institute (JOI), 2006

This piece looks at the intersection between outreach and inreach in terms of the current strategy by some in the Jewish community to approach these issues as opposites. The authors argue that there shouldn't be an either/or position, but rather that combining both approaches creates an enriched Jewish community. The author argues that successful outreach means bringing newcomers and those on the periphery of Jewish life to the gates of the community and successful inreach nurtures and roots involvement in the institutional community. The author concludes by advocating for the consideration of the outside and inside as sources of mutual enrichment.
