Israel’s Orthodox Chief Rabbinate is slated to convene Monday for deliberations on a solution to the crisis over conversions in the Jewish state. The Ne’eman Committee, which presented its recommendations to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last Friday, called for the Conservative and Reform movements to participate along with Orthodox representatives in conversion classes, but granted the Orthodox sole right to carry out the conversions.
