Do you support or oppose the decision of the Supreme Court allowing "jump conversions" according to which conversions overseas are recognized in Israel? [IMRA: Until now, those who resided overseas and went through the entire conversion process overseas in a Reform or Conservative conversion were recognized as Jews by the State of Israel and could immigrate to Israel under to Law of Return. The court now ruled that people residing already in Israel who undergo all but the final stage of conversion inside Israel and then go overseas for the conversion ceremony also would be recognized as Jews by the State. There was considerable confusion over the significance of this ruling as some Orthodox critics of the decision gave the impression that until now Reform and Conservative conversions were not recognized in Israel].
