(Jerusalem Post, Danielle Ziri, online 7/6/17): Under the proposed legislation, being advanced by haredi political parties, people who were converted in the Reform or Conservative movements of Judaism, like [Jen] Halpern, will not be recognized as Jewish in Israel, and therefore, will have no citizenship rights in the Jewish state.
Only conversions performed by the State Conversion Authority, under the guidance of the Chief Rabbinate, would be accepted.
According to Halpern, those who are pushing for the bill to pass are attempting to delegitimize her Judaism. As a mother, she pointed out that she is also worried about the implications of the bill for her son.
"My son is Jewish through me, so if this kind of thing happens, what does it mean for him if he wants to make Aliya in 10 years?" she said. "And he's a boy, but if I had had a daughter, it would have affected by grandchildren also.
"What happens if he wants to serve to protect Israel? Is he going to be told no?" Halpern asked. "Is it better for Israel to turn away someone like my child, who might want to live there and be a contributing member of the community?"
