Rabbi Greenwald — or R’Adam, as I call him — is, in fact, completely rad. I got to know him as a student in his “Intro to Judaism” program, and he has become an invaluable mentor. He has the ability to teach a diverse roomful of students (ranging from “What’s a Jew?” to “My dad is the rebbe”) something new and relevant about Judaism day after day, week after week. His support and genuine care for his students is a huge reason why my own path led to conversion. His new project, Two Faiths/One Family, reaches out to interfaith couples, allowing them to talk openly and — more importantly — to be heard. I’m heartened to see someone who understands that non-Jews in relationships with Jews often feel alienated by the Jewish community, and that reaching them with love and dignity will strengthen Jewish continuity. My beit din and mikveh were recently, and I cannot imagine a better marching partner on this journey than R’Adam.
