    And when you get back into the game, at least acknowledge we’re out there on the same ice.

    If only people would reallty act like that was the case things would be better.

  2. “Besides Project Genesis, there’s Etz Chayim Baltimore, Etz Chayim Owings Mills, Aish HaTorah of Owings Mills, and Effie Flamm’s work at Towson University.” Err, not to mention Chabad, which was recently lauded in the Washington Jewish Week, in a report on Jewish engagement:
    Although the report does not specifically name organizations portrayed negatively, it does cite groups that successfully engage newcomers. Among the most frequently mentioned is Chabad, which Olitzky said is “paradigmatic” in its ability to engage previously uninvolved Jews. http://search.washingtonjewishweek.com/wjw/284817021969359.bsp

    I wrote about this very briefly (http://wwwjackbenimble.blogspot.com/2004/12/shul-is-to-be-endured.html). If you forgive the shameless plug I think that one of the problems we face is that in some cases the net is far too narrow and we eliminate potential candidates because we give them a goal that is too hard for them to reach.

    That is, if you take someone who was uninvolved and ask them to become Shomer Mitzvot you can scare them off. Perhaps that should be part of the goals you establish, but I would advocate just getting them into a position in which they are interested in learning more about Judaism and see if through education and exposure we can bring them back home.
