Tzohar: Allow City Rabbis to Conduct Conversions

The Tzohar Rabbinical Council held a lengthy meeting Wednesday of roughly 40 regional Rabbis.

The meeting covered the topic of conversion within the State of Israel, as well as the danger of assimilation within the country.

The council decided that city Rabbis will be allowed to establish what topics and elements are necessary for conversion. In addition, a committee was established in order to maintain a continuous dialogue with the country’s Chief Rabbinate.
