The Hamodia magazine ran an article titled “Whatever Happened to Kiruv? – Three Critical Changes in Today’s Outreach”.
Here are the three changes they spelled out:
1) The character of potential Baalei Teshuva has changed from someone looking to find themselves to someone looking to learn more about Judaism.
2) Kiruv is no longer the exclusive province of professionals, but is being undertaken now by “average” Jews.
3) The goal of Kiruv has changed from bringing Jews to full mitzvah commitment to simply keeping Jews identifying as Jewish.
What’s your take on the above mention changes?
