I myself converted in the 'reform way'. My wife Iraeli and halachic jew and me have 3 kids. I want to life in Israel so my kids, halachic jews (?????) can have a life as jews. I won't because I don't want my kids to see their father being looked at as some pariah. This is what is being achieved, 4 halachic jews that won't live in Israel.
