Israel Keeps Out Conservative Convert


The Conservative “Rabbinical Assembly” railed that a Kenyan Jewish leader has been denied entry to Israel twice despite his conversion by Conservative rabbis.

“Israel’s continued refusal to admit Yehuda Kimani in order to study at a Conservative movement yeshiva in Jerusalem represents an affront to both Kimani and non-Orthodox communities,” the body said.

Kimani was told that he can only apply for a three-month tourist visa, which would not cover the length of his academic program.

  1. Just yesterday Arutz 7 reported: The State of Israel may officially recognize certain conversions carried out by rabbis affiliated with the Reform and Conservative movements, with the consent of the haredi parties.
    What does this suppose to mean? Why are Israeli Conservative converts accepted?
