A Welcome Israeli Supreme Court Ruling on Non-Orthodox Conversions

Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association welcome the recently announced landmark ruling by Israel’s Supreme Court to recognize non-Orthodox conversions carried out in Israel for the purposes of matters relating to eligibility for Israeli citizenship. The historic 8 to 1 court decision represents an important step forward towards the goal of equal recognition for all non-Orthodox movements of Judaism by the Israeli government. We congratulate our courageous friends at the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC), who led a legal effort spanning 15 years and multiple appeals, culminating in this historic ruling.
