personal training

Two seminar days on Conversion were recently held for Barkai rabbis. The first day took place in Modiin where the rabbis heard lectures about conversion regarding its halachic, legal and political aspects. Lectures were given by Professor Netanel Fisher, a specialist in Conversion from the Academic Center for Law and Science in Hod Hasharon and the Kohelet Forum, Moshe Adorian former National Supervisor of Conversion Classes of the Education Ministry and Rabbi David Bess, a Judge in the Beit Din for Conversions. The second day was held in Kfar Ezion where we were hosted by the Nativ program, the conversion program of the Israel Defense Forces. There we heard a panel discussion of several soldiers who were going through conversion, sat in in classes given to conversion candidates as well as in a beit din sessions where the Dayanim interviewed candidates.
