New Article on Orthodox Conversion in the Social Media Age

Today an article from TOMORROW Magazine was released regarding Orthodox conversion in the social media age. I was interviewed for it a number of months ago and was pleased with the final result. I found Megan did a great job portraying Orthodoxy and one convert’s journey (not me). 

You can find the article on TOMORROW’s website here.

The subject of the piece, Chaviva Galatz, published a sort of rebuttal on her blog.

    Pleased with the final result?

    The author makes the Israeli Rabbinate sound like the %$*#@^%$ Vatican!

    There is no central authority in Orthodox Judaism today, you know that, I’m surprised that you don’t protest these distortions.

      That is an exaggeration, but it doesn’t deflect from the piece overall. I had no part in writing or editing the article, I gave an interview and was quoted briefly.

        To the uninformed, it doesn’t come across as an exaggeration. It’s a falsehood. Which makes me wonder how much of the remainder of the article is “exaggerated”.
