Opening the Gates: How Proactive Conversion Can Revitalize the Jewish Community

By Bruce A. Phillips

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), 1999

Opening the Gates: How Proactive Conversion Can Revitalize the Jewish Community by Gary Tobin argues that the Jewish community should take a proactive stance to conversion by looking to increase outreach efforts. While this book is fascinating in its own right, the reviewer argues that it lacks empirical evidence and does not reference studies that either support or contradict the main argument.
