Jerusalem – In the wake of several high-profile controversies in which Orthodox converts from the US were rejected by the Israeli rabbinical courts and the chief rabbinate, Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef announced on Wednesday that the recognition process is now set for “serious reform.”

For several years, increasing numbers of converts from North America who have immigrated to Israel have found their conversions questioned and even rejected by the chief rabbinate and the rabbinical courts when they have come to register for marriage or other religious services.

In July this year, the Supreme Rabbinical Court declined to recognize a convert who converted through Rabbi Haskel Lookstein, a prominent Orthodox rabbi in the US. Lookstein also oversaw the conversion Ivanka Trump, daughter of president-elect Donald Trump, and the rejection of his convert by the rabbinical courts essentially cast doubt by the rabbinical establishment over Ivanka Trump’s conversion.

In September, the chief rabbinate rejected a convert who had been approved by the most senior rabbinical judge of the Orthodox Beth Din (religious court) of America, Rabbi Gedalia Dov Schwartz.

One of the central problems critics of the chief rabbinate have pointed to is the fact that there are no set criteria by which the chief rabbinate and the rabbinical courts make their decisions on the issues.

The announcement on Wednesday comes in response to a legal petition by the ITIM religious services advisory and lobbying group demanding that the chief rabbinate reveal either criteria or the list of rabbis on its list whose conversions it accepts.

In the statement, Rabbi Yosef said that together with fellow Chief Rabbi David Lau, they had decided to hold a conference next week of all the rabbinical judges on the Supreme Rabbinical Court together with the rabbis of the Council of the Chief Rabbinate in order to establish criteria for recognizing foreign Orthodox converts.

“The purpose is to reach a situation in which the chief rabbinate will decide whether or not a rabbi is recognized [to convert] in accordance with known criteria, and not to enter into the details of the conversion itself… as opposed to the past situation in which chief rabbinate officials took upon themselves to examine the details of each case ” said Yosef’s office in a statement to the press.

The statement is likely referring to Rabbi Itamar Tubul, the head of the Chief Rabbinate’s Marriage and Conversion Department who has been in charge of evaluating, investigating and ultimately accepting or rejecting conversions done in the US.

Until now Tubul has retained the backing of Yosef, who has authority over the Marriage and Conversion Department, although Wednesday’s statement seemed to imply a reprimand for Tubul.

In July however, Lau was publicly critical of Tubul and said in a letter to him that he should accept conversions authorized by Schwartz.

Under the new process, any conversion authorized by a rabbi on the chief rabbinate’s list, to be drawn up in accordance with the new criteria, will be automatically approved, “except in a situation of actual problem [when] the case will be transferred to the rabbinical courts to clarify the issue.

The chief rabbinate mentioned specifically the recent case of the rejection of Lookstein’s convert, noting that the same rabbi had also overseen the conversion of Ivanka Trump, daughter of president-elect Donald Trump.

The statement issued by Yosef’s office said explicitly that in a situation like Ivanka Trump’s, the convert’s conversion would not need any further clarification or investigation.

ITIM welcomed the chief rabbinate’s announcement which it said could alleviate “the increasing crisis between the State of Israel and these rabbis and their communities.”

“We hope that the process produced by the chief rabbinate will reduce the chaos and bureaucracy and make life easier for those seeking to tie their fate to the State of Israel,” the organization said in a press statement.

    In an excerpt from the interview released early, the Israeli leader said: “I know Donald Trump. I know him very well…his support for Israel is clear. He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people. There’s no question about that.”

    ~Thank you David Duke, Andy the “flip” Anglin, Mike Rivero, Mark Dankof and the Ugly Troofers and Stormfront clowns, you are marked! The rest of you who are trying to weasel back in you are marked too!

    The premier told the annual Brookings Institution’s Saban Forum for Middle East Policy on Sunday that he would raise the “bad” Iran nuclear deal with Trump, and urged continued US intervention in the Middle East. He also appeared to brush off fears of an uptick in anti-Semitism in the US, noting that the fringe trend of anti-Jewish hatred was a feature of all democracies.

    Right-wing politicians have contended that settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem has nearly ground to a halt under the Obama administration, which forcefully condemns any building over the Green Line.

    Asked whether Trump’s incoming administration will allow Israel to do whatever it wants regarding settlement building in the West Bank, Netanyahu said “I think we have been doing what we want.”

    ~I think we have a Stalin on our hands folks, and he is getting ready to build a wall. Why build a wall, why not just enforce the law? Because Jews dont enforce “our laws” they only do the deeds of their father.

    I dont trust Rabbi’s, but David Duke does, this ones for you Davey!

    Donald Trump has been widely accused of courting anti-Semites and of being a threat to Israel, especially by American Jews. These accusers, and these Jews, have it wrong. Trump — at a personal, professional and policy level — will go down in history as the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel president ever.

    The extended First Family will be largely Jewish. Donald Jr.’s wife, with whom he has five children, is half-Jewish. Trump’s younger son, Eric, married a Jewish woman two years ago in a highly publicized wedding under a traditional chuppa. It was officiated by Jared Kushner, Trump’s Jewish son-in-law and husband of Ivanka, who herself converted to Orthodox Judaism seven years ago. Ivanka keeps a kosher household and, to her father’s delight, is religiously observant, even avoiding phone calls on the Sabbath. Donald, who wholeheartedly embraces his family’s Jewish associations, encouraged his daughter’s conversion “from Day One” (in Ivanka’s words) and on the campaign trail gushed that Ivanka “is about to have a beautiful Jewish baby,” her third.

    In business, Trump surrounded himself with tough-minded, often Orthodox Jews in top positions, as lawyers and trusted advisers. He also succeeded in business by welcoming Jews (and blacks) as members at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, breaking the city’s long-held bans, and then made Palm Beach’s discrimination practices a cause célèbre by suing the city council over its support for anti-Semitic and racist bans. The Trump Foundation’s IRS filings reveal a history of generous donations to Jewish organizations, an unusual practice by non-Jews, according to Jonathan Sarna, the chief historian of the National Museum of American Jewish History. The donations range from cultural to Zionist. Friends of the Israel Defense Forces is among Trump’s donees.

    How is it all our internet leaders failed to mention all this? Were they deliberately misleading you?

    F is for Fake and a few other unfavorable things. Folks I hope I am entirely wrong about Trump, but if Im right, I was telling you to stay out of that croc filled lake even if it meant Hillary would be pres., which we all knew that would never happen and if it did, I think it would have been better for us than Trump because people might just wake up!

    Can anyone explain how Ivanka is Jewish and Donald Jr’s wife is “half Jewish”? It sounds like David Duke narrating this. Is she half Methodist or is she half white (from the waist down)?

    Trump promises to be different. His life experience, his instincts, and his community of advisers all speak to his wholehearted embrace of things Jewish, especially the Jewish state. “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 per cent, 1,000 per cent. It will be there forever,” he vowed. No Jew could be more emphatic.

    And the media is slowly banging the drums of war while our fake leaders chear it all on once again!
