According to Avrham Infeld, "adoption" is a much more suitable term for describing conversion to Judaism because it reflects the truth of the matter: this indivdiual is being
adopted into this people. By replacing the term conversion with adoption, the emphasis is shifted from the individual to the people. The result is to reflect even further the fissures
which exist within this people, begging the question: who is this people who are about to adopt this individual?
