The Israel Conversation

266 Conversion in Modern Israel (Re-release)

July 22, 2022

There are thousands of Israelis who do not meet the definition of "Jew" by the standards of Orthodox Judaism. Imagine going to Jewish schools, serving in the IDF, and then being told that you can't marry a Jew! How should the Jewish State resolve this disturbing problem for so many of its citizens?

Rabbi Chashi Freedman is the Educational Director of Nativ, the largest conversion preparation organization in Israel. He sat down with Mike and Rena to discuss the work he does. He shared moving stories and profound insights that you won't want to miss. Whatever your opinions are on these matters, this is an episode that will stay with you for some time. Join us!
