Jewish outreach is a term with mixed support sometimes used to translate the Hebrew word kiruv or keruv (literally, "to draw close" or 'in-reach'). Judaism usually does not actively seek converts, although all denominations do accept those with a sincere commitment. Efforts are instead directed at Jews who have "gone astray", or who have been born Jewish in a non-observant family.
