Reform Rabbi Gilad Kariv said he believes the Knesset is signaling to the Chief Rabbinate and its political supporters that there is a limit to the abuse of converts and contempt of Israeli public opinion on Wednesday, following the passage in the Knesset of the IDF conversion bill's preliminary reading, Israel Radio reported.

Also Wednesday, Conservative Movement head Yizhar Hess congratulated the bill's sponsor, MK David Rotem (Israel Beiteinu), but stressed that his movement will be calling for the ultimate passage of the law in the Knesset, according to the report.
