MK Margi defends Shas position on military conversions

Shas MK Ya'acov Margi responded to Israel Beiteinu MK David Rotem's criticism to Shas's opposition to a bill proposed by Israel Beiteinu to recognize the autonomous and legitimate state of military conversions, effectively detaching them from the supervision of the Chief Rabbinate.

"We have no problem with IDF conversions. There is nothing to check," said Margi during an interview on Army Radio. "We stand with Rabbi Amar's position. He has no problem with the conversions."

Margi added, "We don't want in Israel a multiplication of [Jewish] sects. One conversion for everyone that is the goal of a legislative compromise."
