JewsByChoice.org is a trans-denominational, peer-run online resource providing Jews by choice with opportunities to explore, discuss, and engage Jewish identity, tradition, culture, and observance.  Website content focuses on Jewish conversion, post-conversion Jewish life, and issues related directly to Judaism.

We request that JewsByChoice.org members stick to topics/discussions that are relevant to the focus stated above.

JewsByChoice.org has a zero-tolerance policy for: Anti-Semitic commentary or rhetoric; proselytizing for other religions (including all forms of Messianic Judaism) or a particular Jewish movement; personal insults or threats.  We ask that all members respect these prohibitions.  Failure to comply with them may result in a member being temporarily or permanently banned from participation on the website.

Also, we welcome thoughtful debate but ask that all participants disagree respectfully and that all remarks be directed at issues, positions, events, and statements, rather than at individuals.  Each community member is responsible for his or her own activity and commentary in the Forums or Blog comments section.  JewsByChoice.org can not be held liable for the statements or conduct of individual community members.

JewsByChoice.org administrators and/or website staff reserve the right to revoke memberships and/or delete user accounts without notice.  On a case by case basis, if an administrator feels that a community member’s participation falls outside of the parameters defined by the TOS, they may moderate the member’s remarks or even remove the inappropriate content.

Also be advised that these TOS are subject to change. Should any changes be made to the TOS, members will be notified via our on-site messaging system.

Please create a gravatar account. (required) 

We ask members to do this for two reasons. The first is that Gravatars help create a sense of community. The second is that having memebrs use Gravatar accounts helps us to weed out automated spambot registrations. We ask that all new members register a Gravatar account within 24 hours of creating their account. IMPORTANT: Registrations without Gravatars will not be approved! Please be sure to set one up.
