Rabbinate seeks to circumvent Supreme Court ruling on mikvaot

The Chief Rabbinate has issued a decision which states that public mikvaot should not be used for the immersion of converts from any denomination, so as to prevent converts from the Reform and Conservative Movements using them.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court ruled that the non-Orthodox denominations must be allowed to make use of public mikvaot, or ritual baths, for the final immersion ceremony required of converts.
