Israel’s Supreme Court is scheduled to rule on whether or not to recognize non-Orthodox conversions performed in Israel. Thursday’s ruling by a panel of 11 judges, headed by Chief Justice Aharon Barak, is expected to be a landmark decision. Only conversions performed by Israel’s Orthodox establishment are now considered valid for those choosing to convert in the Jewish state.
