Glenda Solomon, a South African whose conversion was not officially recognized by the country’s Jewish court, has died. Solomon was one of eight women, most of them married to Jews, who were converted by a U.S. rabbi after being taught Judaism by a South African rabbi, but the country’s Beit Din, or religious court, refused to accept her conversion. After Solomon died last week, she was buried under the auspices of a Progressive congregation.
