Editor's Introduction to Conversion

By Susan Berrin

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2008

The editor of Sh'ma discusses the recent controversy surrounding conversion to Judaism both in Israel and in the U.S., entailing what has been called "a new kind of religious imperialism." The understanding of who is Jewish must encompass both the texts of the tradition and the perceptions and experiences of those embracing Judaism.
