Is orthodox conversion Kosher? New solutions for an ‘unsolvable’ problem…
Rabbi Nathan Lopes Cardozo
Joining the Jewish people was always a sensitive issue, but in today’s open global society, the issue of conversion truly stepped into the spotlight. What are the criteria to be Jewish? What where they 500 years ago? What should they be today? And maybe the most interesting question is: Why?
Rabbi Cardozo discusses the heart of this issue, in his opinion, the question of “not who is a Jew, but what is a Jew?” In addition, he shares his personal story of conversation and the wisdom and insight from decades of dealing with this profound question.
