Ask Prime Minister Netanyahu to block legislation that would give the ultra-Orthodox absolute control over conversion in Israel. Prime Minster Netanyahu has said he will not bring the bill before the Knesset. We must hold him to this pledge.

What you need to know:

  • MK David Rotem (Yisrael Beiteniu) introduced legislation that would give the Chief Rabbinate in Israel exclusive authority over conversion in Israel.
  • The legislation has already passed the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee by a vote of 5-4.
  • The legislation would go so far as to require converts to live an orthodox lifestyle.
  • The legislation is opposed by the NIF-funded Israel Religious Action Center along with the majority of North American Jews including the Reform and Conservative movements.
