May I congratulate the Chief Rabbinate for a superb own goal. We now have a situation where the London Beit Din will not recognise Israeli performed conversions. The Israeli Biet Din doesn?t recognise conversions from Diaspora conversions. At a time when Israel has a problem of 100,000?s of people from the FSU who thought they were Jewish and found they were not when they got to Israel. Its time to put there own house in order. Meanwhile the number of Jews in the world is dwindling year on year. ?Fighting over deck chairs on the Titanic? comes to mind. The only result is to strengthen the case for civil marriage.
