The Jerusalem Post story, “Spiritual odyssey turned nightmare” introduces us to Rachel, an Orthodox convert whose conversion in Rome was recognized by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel but not the Interior Ministry. Oh yeah and she’s married to a kashrut supervisor, she’s pregnant and living in Israel without any rights.
But Rachel’s not as worried for herself as she is for the child in her womb. She says: “But what bothers me most is the uncertainty about my baby. Will my baby be considered a Jew? What is the status of a baby born to someone without any status? I don’t know.”
So just to be clear, converts are now illegal aliens in land of Israel? You know because I just want to know where I stand. Right now, I’m mostly disgusted in America…where at least I’m sure I’m Jewish.
