Los Angeles Convert Moves for Acceptance

An article in the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles, “Angeleno pushes effort on recognizing conversions” demystifies the force behind a recent resolution on conversion proposed by the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI).

At the heart of the decision is a Los Angeles Jewish convert, Lorin Fife, who hopes to bring “the conversion process back to one that is as accepting and moderate as his own.”

Fife has said “My hope is that by continuing to pursue this issue with sensitivity and dignity and thoughtfulness, we can transform this from something ugly into something beautiful and a good thing for the Jewish people.”
