Knesset Constitution Committee to Discuss Conversion Law

The Knesset Constitution Committee is scheduled to meet today (Sunday) to discuss the conversion bill, and is expected to evoke sharp opposition by the hareidi parties.

According to the bill, each local rabbi will have the authority to perform conversions, integrating any of the forms of Judaism (i.e., Conservative, Reform, etc).
