from Masorti - Conversion Bill Update - and thank you

the masorti (conservative) movement in israel - promoting religious pluralism and building community through inclusive, traditional, egalitarian Judaism
The situation with regard to the Conversion Bill looks very encouraging. I hesitate to say it is totally and completely off the table for this session only because I know there are still some meetings taking place and I know that MK David Rotem and his allies would attempt to move the bill forward if they saw the slightest chance for success.
Your efforts in all of this were extremely important. Through our website link alone we know of 23,000 emails that went to Prime Minister Netanyahu and we understand that the office of the Prime Minister, in total, received in excess of 50,000 emails.
I think it looks very good, but we are staying alert. Again, thank you.
