Jpost on Rabbanut and Conversions

And now the Jerusalem Post, too, via the AP

The last line is the best:

"I think this decision resolves a lot of problems," Crystal (sic) said.

(Crystal = Krispel)

This will create the biggest yuchsin problem since the time of Ezra and Nechemiah.
I think it’s about time that I formulate a halakhic and hashkafic counterpoint to this business. The RCA should be, but they’re nowhere to be found. After a post or two on the nature of kabbalat mitzvot in giyur, I hope to begin a series going through the book of Ezra (incl Nechemiah), chapter by chapter. Yuchsin is a major theme of the book.
Stay tuned.
