State says nobody has a right to sell the drafts on the open market for a profit, as this infringes on the state's right to keep an asset 'of deep symbolic significance' that belongs to the state and the public.01:40 27.11.15 | 0 comments
What is the point of converting if you are not going to observe anything? If the courses are good and interesting and possible converts are taught by modern thinking Rabbis, maybe then we could have a good majority of those that state that they want to be Jewish, to be Jewish. There is no point in converting someone who will the following day have bacon and eggs for breakfast. If those wishing to convert make a commitment to at least keep kosher and eat only foods which are kosher, to attend services regularly every year and to attend further shiurim at least once a week, then after a period of say a maximum of 3 years, their sincerity should not be doubted. We have to be a bit more realistic at times and not condem people who travel by car on Shabbat or who might celebrate a chag with a party. Most converts are from the former Soviet Union and they were not brought up our way. Give them a chance. Black hats cannot rule us forever!!
