5. Court Orders Equal Funds for Reform Conversions
by Hillel Fendel

The Supreme Court has ruled that the State illegally discriminates
against conversion-to-Judaism institutes of the Reform movement, and
that the government’s refusal to fund them violates the concepts of
pluralism and freedom of religion.

The ruling, handed down Tuesday morning by a three-woman panel headed
by Chief Justice Dorit Beinisch, says the government’s criteria for
funding conversion institutes discriminate against the Reform
movement. The criteria “do not jibe with the principle of freedom of
religion and pluralism,” the judges write.

Hallelujah!

If someone is already a Conservative or Orthodox Jew, what is there
they have to learn to convert to Reform?
It would appear to me they'd already know more than they have to know.
