Conversion to Judaism is a complex matter in Israel. The State conversion system, aimed primarily at Israeli citizens living in Israel, can be inefficient and discouraging. The system is particularly biased against those who immigrated to Israel from the former Soviet Union, those who seek Israeli recognition of conversions undertaken elsewhere, partners of Israeli citizens living outside of Israel who seek to immigrate to Israel, those who wish to convert children of surrogacy, and others.

The ITIM Assistance Center can help:

  • Explain the State’s conversion requirements
  • Recommend an appropriate conversion program, including the State program, the Israeli Army’s Nativ program, or ITIM’s Giyur K’Halacha Conversion Court Network
  • Guide you through the process of converting a minor, including a child of surrogacy
  • Accompany your family to a State rabbinical court
  • Clarify the documentation you need
  • Evaluate your documentation

Looking for a meaningful, inclusive, Orthodox conversion option? Contact ITIM’s Giyur K’Halacha Conversion Court Network
