Controversy and Chaos in Israeli Conversion Courts

By Seth Farber

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2008

The author discusses the logistical, bureaucratic and religious dimensions of conversion in contemporary Israel. He describes the failed attempts to streamline conversion in Israel or create a joint conversion program or an alternative civil conversion. Finally, he asserts that concrete steps to ensure the Jewish character of the state must be taken immediately and those who have come on aliyah must be made to feel at home.
