‘Chief rabbinate should change approach to conversion’ says senior rabbinic figure

Rabbi Re’em Hacohen, a senior figure in the national-religious rabbinic leadership, called on the chief rabbinate to change its approach to the conversion of minors, so as to mitigate Jewish intermarriage in Israel.

The rabbi made his comments on Tuesday during a special “Conversion Day” held in the Knesset at the initiative of MKs Aliza Lavie and Elazar Stern and the ITIM organization to highlight what critics say is the failure of the state conversion system to deal with problems facing the country.
