    I recall Alex suggesting that the UAHC (now URJ) suggested opening Jewish reading rooms.

      Excuse the solecism in the comment. It should say, “I recall Alex suggesting that the UAHC (now URJ) open Jewish reading rooms.” And I meant to add that I also recall thinking it was a good idea. People asked him whether he wanted us to go door-to-door seeking converts, but they misunderstood the difference between offering and proselytizing.
