Rabbinical courts to stop automatically placing financial burden on divorced fathers.02:39 02.12.15 | 0 comments
May I remind you that Orthodoxy wasn't supportive of Zionism in its earlier stages, viewing it as heresy to initiate a return to Eretz Yisrael in the absence of Moshiach? The only Jewish movement that has supported Zionism from its birth to the present day has been the Conservative movement (as well as its Israeli counterpart, the Masorti movement). As regards Orthodoxy and Conservative/Masorti conversions, their inability to view them as halachic even though the halachic standards for Orthodox conversion have been met (study, accepting the Ohl Mitzvot, circumcision and immersion) is elitist snobbery at best and pig-headed intolerance at worst. Orthodoxy may be the fastest growing Jewish movement, but its intolerance will ensure it's the one with the smallest number of adherents.
