Convert – You are required to bring the original conversion certificate from an authorized court, the document of the court’s verdict of conversion and confirmation of conversion from the Ministry of Religion. If the conversion took place outside of Israel, confirmation by an authorized Israeli court is also required. Generally, rabbinical courts only recognize Orthodox conversions that were performed overseas.
New Immigrant – You are required to bring confirmation of Jewish status and unmarried status and the certificate of immigrant status. Documentation from outside of Israel requires confirmation by an Israeli court. If you have migrated from Ethiopia or the Commonwealth of Independent States and you need confirmation of Jewish status, apply to the special court established for this purpose. Such requests are handled at the national level and can be reached at 02-6582839. To demonstrate your status, you may be required to provide a certificate of immigrant status and even a birth certificate of a parent.
Tourist – You are required to bring your passport, a copy of your parents’ ketubah, and confirmations of your Jewish and unmarried statuses from a rabbinical court. All these documents must be authenticated by the local rabbinate.
