Tekuma Welcomes Blocking of Conversion Bill


Rabbi Dov Lior and the rabbis of the Tekuma movement welcomed the Jewish Home party’s move to block the conversion bill authored by MK Elazar Stern (Hatnua).

In their letter, the rabbis said that the conversion bill in the format submitted by MK Stern, without the necessary amendments proposed by Deputy Religious Affairs Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan and without the consent of the Chief Rabbinate, "could be a serious hindrance to the people of Israel."
