This argument of course leads back to the illegitimacy of non-orthodox varieties of Judaism in the eyes of the orthodox, which you and I probably won't solve today.I agree that one should seek the advice of a qualified Rabbi, but as far as the State of Israel recognizing a conversion, only orthodox are recognized as qualified. I have a hard time with that.Thanks Dov for recognizing and addressing the ssnsitivity of the issue I've brought to the fore.Yes, it is profoundly complicated; but only by confronting that which confounds us, can we move forward with the things that we would rather not confound us.The original question is, in essence: How does Israel define who is and who is not a jew; do those definitions make sense; and based on those definitions, how does Israel treat those who claim that they are jews?aliyah was the original topic.
