Israel’s chief rabbi reportedly issued a series of sweeping new rules on conversion without Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s knowledge. The new rules introduce a series of new demands on candidates for conversion and grant the chief rabbis exclusive control over the conversion courts, which are supposed to be under the jurisdiction of the Prime Minister’s Office, Ha’aretz reported.
