Keruv - Interfaith
What is Keruv?
Keruv (to come closer), spearheaded by the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs (a constituent arm of the Jewish movement), was formed to answer the needs of interfaith couples and families and, in the words of the Torah, to "welcome strangers in to the tent."
To make every family, in-married and inter-married alike, feel as if they belong in a conservative synagogue with no pressure to convert, change or do anything different in their lives except to raise their children in a Jewish household and to observe Jewish ritual as best they are able.
