Conversion Policy: Who Is A Jew in Israeli Society?

Hosted By: Shalom Hartman Institute

How does one become a Jew? The issue of conversion in Israel has significance beyond personal identity – it impacts a convert’s status in marriage registration, the status of one’s children, and even the location of one’s burial plot.

Tani Frank, Director of Hartman’s Center for Judaism and State Policy, will discuss exciting new conversion legislation and his plans to secure its passage despite intense opposition, in a conversation with journalist Yardena Schwartz. Note: Session is in English.
