Question Important

One of my friends want to convert to Judaism.

He found Rabbi who can help him because he does not have the opportunity to convert in his own country.
Rabbi is from

" ... He comes from a rabbinic family, with rabbis going back 700 years."

and

" and was ordained as an orthodox rabbi at the .."


Please help my friend , I don't have enough knowledge about this

What do you think about this ?

I can send private message with a link to this Rabbi web site

If the Rabbi was ordained as Orthodox I assume it is Conversion to Orthodox Judaism .

I hope I am right

I hope for my friend that he is on right path to become better !

I guess Orthodox Rabbi can Convert just according to the laws that are accepted by Orthodox Judaism

That is the only way, at least I hope because I want to help and I know here you know a lot more than I do.

Thank you.

The only option that is acceptable by the Law

( the only option for people who do not have opportunity to convert in their own country )

I think that I know who is the "rabbi" that you are talking about

in this web site are metioned your exact words (700 years rabbi etc)

Yes, my friend contacted him but we were smart enough to reject that "offer"!

There are people who want to contribute to Jewish community and if someone has Jewish grandmother or grandfather he deserves the chance to do the conversion and do everything by the Law.

Playing with someones emotions is not good.

If someone has any recommendation what to do in this situation I hope we can find a solution.

He needs to do the conversion to Judaism , we checked everything.


During the war almost entire Jewish population suffered enormous losses at this region and this region was complicated and it will be complicated forever.

Jewish properties are still in the possession of the government here and they do not intend to give it back to Jewish people. Unfair is that xtians church here is privileged and they got 60 % from everything they claimed they "owned".



This is really, really complicated region and only very wise decision can solve situation.

Also conversion here is not possible because some other things. Again complicated... maybe you will hear something

Jewish by choice is different story ( and reasonably questionable) but here my friend wants to do the conversion to Judaism the right way.
