Three outreach programs in the San Francisco area —two held under Reform Jewish auspices and one sponsored by the Jewish Community Center—have demonstrated that intermarried families can be reached by outreach efforts of the Jewish community. These efforts have various components that require different levels of commitment and target separately members of conversionary and interfaith families. Long-term follow-up data are needed on the Jewish identification of children of interfaith and conversionary families.
