I suspect that few around here have noticed, but the new Christianity.se went into private beta last week, and into public beta today.

Some of the questions being asked there are specifically about Judaism and Jewish practice, and as such, are off-topic/closable there—but which might fit here.

Current example:

That meta question asks if it would be okay to migrate this type of question here with your permission (sadly, there is no way for SE software to require permission; instead, a question would be migrated here, and the community could then choose to close it).

Keep in mind, though, that if Judaism-related questions are closed there as off-topic (i.e., not migrated), users may still choose to come here to ask instead—so don't be surprised if you see some new faces around.

The purpose of this meta question is to discuss how this community feels about questions being migrated, in either direction. Your thoughts?

    Thanks for the heads-up. This is going to be interesting.

I think we're going to have to see how these cross-religious migrations pan out and deal with them, at least at first, on a case-by-case basis. In general, we're pretty tolerant here about question content, as long as it's about Judaism and not other religions. So, I suspect that some migrations from Christianity.SE might need a bit of editing to fit in here, but that's not so bad.

The tithing question, in particular, could probably work here without any editing. The Christian-inspired opening is the motivation for the question, but the question is all about Jewish practice.

We have had a couple of questions here that probably would do better if migrated over to Christianity. It'll be nice to have that migration channel as a possible outlet. (I'm looking forward to History.SE opening up for the same reason.)
