History of LDS - Jewish Connections

In Utah: B'nai Shalom

LDS contacts with Judaism have led to an exchange of converts. Salt Lake's synagogue Kol Ami has been attended by some ex-Mormons. Perhaps a few hundred Jews have become Latter-day Saints. Like Evangelical Jews, most have continued to emphasize their Jewishness, and fellow Mormons have welcomed them and considered them "of Judah."

Convert memoirs have appeared; for honesty and literary quality probably none surpasses Herbert Rona's Peace to a Jew.

B'nai Shalom Jewish Mormons formed B'nai Shalom in 1967 to function as a support group and to facilitate genealogical research.
