Jewish Converts

Lena Romanoff
Lena Romanoff is the Founder and Director of the Jewish Converts & Interfaith Network, an organization for Jews by Choice and for those involved in an interfaith relationship. She counsels people who may be contemplating conversion as well as interfaith couples and their families. She has organized numerous conferences and workshops on conversion, intermarriage, and interdating. She lectures widely on these topics and has appeared on many radio and television programs.

In response to the demand of interfaith parents seeking guidance concerning the formation of the religious identity of their children, Lena Romanoff produced the educational and motivational video entitled, "Who Am I?" This video deals with intermarriage from the child's perspective. Ms. Romanoff is also the author of the book, Your People My People - Finding Acceptance and Fulfillment as a Jew by Choice, published by the Jewish Publication Society.
