The difference between success and failure is sometimes just a matter of where you stand.

For instance, the government feels that the conversion process needs reform as it has failed to convert enough applicants. The religious courts on the other hand probably think they are doing a good job.

So, to decide which it is, the JP is reporting a study that asked the potential converts themselves.

The not so surprising results is that 76% of the potential converts lacked confidence that they would complete the process and be Jewish.

Now here’s the kicker.

70% of them felt it was because the purpose of the conversion process was to make them into religious Jews, not Jewish.

Based on their answers, Jewish must mean something like eating Matza Ball Soup at SpringFest.

I’d say the Rabbinical courts are doing a good job protecting the fort, if that’s the case.
