About Us

Giyur K’Halacha is Israel’s leading, non-governmental, conversion court network. Giyur K’Halacha provides a meaningful, supportive, Orthodox conversion process for Israeli citizens, particularly children. Its caring, professional staff assist candidates of every background, from initial inquiries, to educational programs, rabbinical court approvals, and beyond. By offering a compassionate conversion court network that is consistent with Jewish law and free of government bureaucracy, Giyur K’Halacha is changing the nature of conversion in Israel.

Our Approach

Giyur K’Halacha’s staff and rabbinical court judges are attentive to and respectful of candidates’ personal, family, and social circumstances. We are particularly sensitive to the needs of those who already consider themselves Jewish, young families, and children under the age of bar and bat mitzvah. We ensure that each conversion meets individual needs, and view conversion as a path rather than a goal.

Our Rabbis & Rabbinical Courts

More than 40 prominent, Orthodox Israeli rabbis, including Rabbi Nachum Rabinovitch, Rabbi Haim Amsalem, Rabbi Re’em HaCohen, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, and Rabbi David Stav serve as judges in Giyur K’Halacha rabbinical courts in Alon, Be’erot Yitzchak, Efrat, Lavie, Ma’ale Gilboa, Shoham, and Tel Aviv.
