RCA Membership Formally Embraces New Geirus Procedures
Ratifies Previous Acceptance of New Geirus Policy and Standards
 
 
Policies Headlines
May 2, 2007 -- Whereas, as a matter of Halakhah, the conversion process needs to be done in a way that matches Jewish law and brings honor and dignity both to the Rabbinic Courts involved and to the converts themselves;

Whereas we must do everything necessary to avoid shaming a genuine Convert or bringing their conversion into question;

Whereas it is important to standardize the way in which conversions are done in North America;

Whereas we very much want conversions done under the auspices of the Rabbinical Council of America to continue to be universally accepted;

It is therefore resolved that the Rabbinical Council of America, in convention assembled, accepts the Geirus Policy and Standards as formalized on March 15, 2007, to be the policy of the Rabbinical Council of America.
