Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Boston (CJP), the Boston Federation, is a national pioneer in supporting and funding outreach to the intermarried. In its 1998 Strategic Plan, CJP declared: "To fulfill the Biblical imperative to welcome the stranger and newcomer, we must reinforce and increase our efforts to be open and welcoming to interfaith families, to help and support them in the hope that they will find meaning in Jewish life, choose to create Jewish families, participate in Jewish communal activities and support Jewish institutions."
