Reacting to Reader Responses

Just an update to let everyone know that The Jewish Planet has published my response to reader reactions towards my editorial on RCA conversion policy. I responded specifically to a particularly passionate letter from one convert. You can view both the reader’s letter and my response here: Response to Reader Reaction to Conversion Editorial.

Unfortunately, space did not permit this positive response to be published:

“Hi Aliza,

I don’t know if you remember me…we met at Aish a couple of months ago. I just wanted to let you know that I read your editorial in the Jewish [Planet] and I thought it was wonderful. Actually, someone at Ohab Zedek photocopied it and handed it out to my whole conversion class. We are all so upset about what is going on with this ruling, and it was comforting to see you address the topic so eloquently and with much emotion. Thank you for writing it, and for giving a voice to all of our concerns.

  1. Well said Aliza. I wonder if my son’s gerut will someday be challenged by the ultramontaigne forces at work in Orthodox Judaism these days!
