An Israeli ministry has agreed to set aside funds from the state budget in order to establish a pluralistic conversion training institute. The Ne’eman Committee, which was seeking to resolve the conversion crisis in Israel, recommended that an institute made up of rabbis from the Orthodox, Conservative and Reform streams be created to educate potential converts, but that the actual conversion be performed by Orthodox rabbis.
