This is a serious issue and the ultra-Orthodox community is mostly to blame. It has to do with power and money rather than religious belief. This new idea of invalidating conversions is simply sickening. I love the orthodox community but the ultra-orthodox, who I love as well, are running the show of modern orthodoxy to the detriment of everyone. Contrary to what others write I think this is an excellent and well informed article. We had better better pay attention to it.
