A Jewish fund-raising organization called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to withdraw a new compromise bill on religious conversions in Israel. The New Israel Fund’s letter came as a Knesset committee was expected to rule on whether recommendations from Finance Minister Ya’acov Ne’eman’s commission to solve the crisis on religious pluralism could be merged into an already existing conversion bill and after Ne’eman said an institute for joint conversions in Israel would open in three months, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz.
