Stars of David

Massachusetts-based adoptive support group with over 1,000 members nationwide. Formed by Phyllis Nissen and Rabbi Susan Abramson in 1984, the organization provides a social and educational support group for Jewish and part-Jewish adoptive families and prospective adoptive families. (It is NOT an adoption agency.)

Most members are adoptive parents. Other members include grandparents of adopted children, adult adopted persons and nonwhite biological children.

The organization deals with specific identity issues faced by Jewish families and their adopted children, including such issues as conversion to Judaism, acceptance of the child and adoptive parents by the Jewish community, if, when and how to incorporate the child's biological heritage into the Jewish identity and related issues.

The organizational leaders hope to expand the group by creating more chapters and also by making the Jewish community and especially the synagogue community aware of the group and adoption issues.
