Yaakov I would add that I think it is unfortunate that while the Law of Return grants citizenship to non-orthodox converts, the Israeli government continues to deny the Jewishness of these people. I know many non-orthodox Jews by choice that would make aliyah (and a few that have) if they felt that they would be welcomed. Often here in the US they are among the most dedicated to Jewish practice and continuity, yet their important contributions are all but ignored by those who try to prevent them from coming to Israel. So, brother, to rephrase a couple of your posts... is Israel better served by Igor with a Jewish grandparent and an open disconcern for the Jewish people, culture, and future, or by a sincere ben/bat Avraham v' Sarah who teaches Hebrew to bar/bat mitzvah students, raises Jewish children, and has completely fallen in love with this argumentative people of ours and our traditions, and from the depths of his or her heart wants to live in our homeland?
