Abstract:This master's thesis explores the roots of the 1935 Takana - which forbids marriage to those who convert for the purpose of marriage - and subsequent reaffirmations issued by Rabbi Jacob S. Kassin, the Brooklyn, NY Syrian Jewish community's Chief Rabbi, and the Rabbinical Council of the Syrian community. Such marriages were not to be recognized by the community. Children of such marriages could not attend community yeshivot. Further, rites of passage such as bar mitzvahs, weddings and the right to be buried in the community's cemetery were denied, as well as synagogue honors. The author provides historical context, examines 18th century practices on marriage to converts in the United States, interviews community rabbis, discusses enforcement, provides individual cases, examines demographics, and analyzes the changes in the Takana with each Reaffirmation. The author also provides a social context for how the Takana is interpreted 70 years after it was issued. As a community member, the author provides valuable insight into how the Takana is interpreted by the community's members.* *This dissertation is a compound document (contains both a paper copy and a CD as part of the dissertation).
