Complete a valid, orthodox conversion to Judaism with the support of your choice of a Sponsoring Rabbi near you. In addition to distance learning, conversion concludes with ritual ceremonies, such as bet din (rabbinic court) and mikveh (ritual immersion), and you’ll receive your signed conversion certificate after you will approve by the Bet din.

Very. Conversion to Judaism is the most significant decision in your life. It requires real life style changes,
including many basics such as eating habits and work schedule. Conversion to Judaism can strain family ties,
and it will certainly alter the way you look at the world. Nevertheless, if you are willing and able to meet these
demands, we will encourage you and do our best to ensure a smooth process.
You are expected to be part of a vibrant Orthodox Jewish community and have a Rabbi who will be a part of
your conversion process. Gradually and at your own pace, you are expected to learn how to practice, living as a
religiously observant Jew. Men and Women are expected, at all times to act and dress in a manner that is
within the guidelines of Tzniut. Women may be required to cover their hair, even before the actual conversion.
The Rabbis and your other teachers will help guide you in this process, but it is up to you to show motivation
and a desire to live the Judaism you have chosen.
NOTE: The conversion process will need to involve your entire immediate family including your spouse, (or
boyfriend / girlfriend) and any live-at-home children, whether or not they are already Jewish.
In order for the conversion to take place, the Bet Din will require you to live within reasonable proximity of an
Orthodox synagogue, where you can comfortably participate in traditional community life. Walking great
distances or making arrangements to stay with friends on Shabbat, is not an acceptable alternative. If you have
minor children they will need to be enrolled in an acceptable Orthodox day school. There are no exceptions to
these requirements. We do understand that this can be difficult for financial and other reasons. We insist upon
it only because they are essential for your future growth and success.
This varies considerably, depending upon your previous background and knowledge of Judaism. Generally, you
should expect the process to take between 18 to 24 months from the time we receive your application.
However, some meet our requirements faster, while others take longer.
You undoubtedly know that Judaism does not allow or recognize intermarriage. You can still apply and be
accepted in our program even if you are civilly married. You are both expected to participate in the learning
process. Failure to be open with us concerning this matter is grounds for dismissal from the program.
We also want you to know that civilly married non-Jewish couples are generally expected to maintain separate
living quarters for a three month period following a conversion. Where one of the couple is already Jewish,
living separately is required at the earliest possible time but definitely before the conversion. We recognize that
this sometimes poses hardships and will try to assist you to find acceptable solutions where necessary. Singles
are expected to maintain an appropriate lifestyle. While one is seriously pursuing conversion, dating is strongly
discouraged. Please note that all such relationships must be honestly discussed with your sponsoring Rabbi and
with the Bet Din. We invite you to discuss any difficulties you may have in your meetings with the Bet Din.
Conversion means taking on a new identity. Judaism understands and expects that you will continue to treat
your family of origin with respect and dignity. Nevertheless, an Orthodox conversion will affect family ties in
important ways. You will no longer be able to attend church services, even for weddings and other lifecycle
occasions. While you might be able to eat some foods in family homes, the kosher diet will severely restrict
sharing meals. Perhaps most difficult, holidays that families celebrate together such as December 25 and Easter
will be off limits. We encourage you to consider these issues and speak with your family about the changes you
The Bet Din requires you to have a "sponsoring Rabbi". Although this Rabbi need not be your synagogue Rabbi
they should be able to work together. He will need to know you well and take an active role in your
conversion. He should be willing to assist you by providing guidance and direction to help you become part of
the community. You may apply to our program even if you do not have a sponsoring Rabbi at this time, but this
requirement will have to be met for you to advance in the program.
A $100 application fee is due with your application and another $750 upon full completion of the Conversion
with the Bet Din. When and if the conversion takes place, there are a few additional costs (Mikveh fees, Mohel
etc.) for which you will be responsible.
The conversion process has several stages. The first step after application is the interview with the Bet Din,
where the program will be explained in detail. You will receive a required reading list, and an overview of
Orthodox conversion procedures.
If you decide to continue, we will arrange subsequent meetings to monitor your progress. These meetings will
provide an idea of the likelihood for success, but our agreement to do the conversion is not guaranteed until
you have shown sufficient progress in the total program.
The Bet Din provides documentation necessary for marriage in Israel. The Personal Status Certificates issued
serve as both proof of Jewishness and, where applicable, eligibility for marriage. You will be requested to
