Rabbis Ovadia Yosef, Shlomo Amar approve IDF conversions

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and Chief Sephardic Rabbi Shlomo Amar approved IDF conversions after a committee of Shas rabbis decided on Friday that they are kosher.
Interior Minister Eli Yishai will bring the halachic ruling to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, along with a recommendation that Judaism classes for potential converts in the IDF be expanded.
