Likud: High Court decision on non-Orthodox conversions ‘endangers Law of Return’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party criticizes a High Court of Justice ruling that recognizes Reform and Conservative conversions to Judaism in Israel for the purposes of obtaining citizenship.

“The High Court made a decision that endangers the Law of Return, which is a cornerstone of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state,” the party says. “Only a vote for Likud will ensure a stable right-wing government that will return sovereignty to the people and the Knesset.”
