Rivlin slams 'dangerous' IDF conversion bill

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin slammed on Tuesday the “dangerous” military conversion bill, while calling on the rabbinate to increase and enhance its conversion efforts as a counter-measure to the massive assimilation taking place in Israel.
Speaking at a Knesset marking 90 years to the Chief Rabbinate's inception, Rivlin noted the wealth of religious bodies that supplement the religious services provided by the rabbinate, but warned of one service that can never be in the hands of a body that is not an official arm of the State.
