Here's another example of how the Haredi-controlled rabbinical court's demonstrating contempt
for a non-Haredi rabbi's conversions:
In a hugely controversial step, the Supreme Rabbinical Court asked a female convert of prominent US Jewish leader Rabbi Haskel Lookstein to declare her acceptance of the religious commandments in court so as to avoid doubt as to her Jewishness.
The ITIM religious services advisory group which was representing the convert, Nicole, in court denounced this step, saying it amounted to a rejection of Lookstein’s conversions and constituted blackmail, while Nicole herself said she felt she had been humiliated.
US Jewry and critics of the religious establishment in Israel have denounced the ongoing failure of the rabbinical courts system to recognize Lookstein’s conversions as “extremist,” saying that such a stance drives a wedge between Diaspora Jewry and the Jewish state.
This is absolutely atrocious, and it's already received
plenty of criticism, because the conversion of Ivanka Trump isn't recognized either
. They have truly gone downhill, and that's why the chief rabbinate should be dissolved. If this matter goes to a general court, it'll be for good reason.
