Written by a consortium of Conservative rabbis, This document argues
for the need to finde a meaningful place in contemporary Conservative Jewish
institutions for intermarried households.
A Place in the Tent combines a thoughtful respect for halachic principles with a realistic consideration of social/demographic realities. The range of rabbinic views, along with the collection of personal stories, have enriched my understanding and pushed my thinking about a Conservative approach to
intermarriage. Kol hakavod!
-Dr. Anne Lapidus Lerner
Jewish Theological Seminary
I welcome with deep appreciation the courage, thougthfulness and originality of this study which faces candidly one of
the major issues confronting the Jewish community in the twenty-first century.
The spiritual and moral character of our congregations will be deeply affected
by the compassion and ethical response found in this document.
-Rabbi Harold Schulweis
Valley Beth Shalom
. . . offers revealing insights into the households of the intermarried and provides creative and sensitive ideas for integrating them into our synagogue communities. This approach embraces the entire family, encourages Jewish continuity, does not alienate the non-Jewish partner, and is mindful of halachah.
