A qualitative study conducted to understand the engagement of interfaith and conversionary families in synagogue life within the Reform Movement. Site visits and comprehensive informant interviews were conducted at six different North American congregations. Themes emerged regarding the impact of congregational outreach efforts, Jewish education, and the multiple roles of Rabbis in the integration and involvement of interfaith and conversionary synagogue families. Data also revealed patterns specific to small congregations.
