Are all of the members of Kol Shalom Jewish?

We have a number of members who are non-Jewish humanists, spouses or partners of Jews, and we take care to respect their cultures as well. While we accept anyone as a Jew who sincerely identifies as a Jew, we do offer an "adoption" ceremony for anyone who wants a formal recognition of being Jewish. (Our form of conversion would not be recognized by other branches of Judaism, just as Orthodoxy doesn't recognize a Conservative conversion and Conservatism doesn't recognize a Reform conversion.)
