Join us for a special program on Tuesday, March 16 at 1pm on Zoom with Gilad Katz, Consul General of Israel to the Southwest United States!
In a landmark Israeli Supreme Court decision issued on Monday, March 1, the Court ruled to recognize conversions by the Reform and Conservative Movements, performed in Israel based on the Law of Return. Converts will now receive an oleh (immigrant) status and Israeli citizenship. Come learn from the Consul General about the background of this decision and what it means for Jews living in Israel and around the world.
