Chief Rabbi refuses to sign conversion certificates conducted under new law

The bitter war being waged by Chief Rabbis Yitzhak Yosef and David Lau against the new Jewish conversion law is continuing unabated, with Yosef caught on tape saying that he will not sign conversions conducted on the terms of the new statute.

Yosef is heard in the recording, aired by haredi news website Kikar Hashabbat on Wednesday night, speaking about a severe difference of opinion he has on the requirements for Jewish conversion with the Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Aryeh Stern and the chairman of the national religious Tzohar rabbinical association Rabbi David Stav.
