Anonymous asked:

I have decided I want to convert to Judaism. My beliefs fall more on the Conservative scale than Orthodox, but I also want to make Aliyah someday. I know that Israel only recognizes the Orthodox movement, so would it be better for me to go Conservative or go Orthodox and practice more conservatively? If I chose Conservative, would I even be able to make Aliyah since I'm not a born Jew?

Hi Anon, sorry it took me a while to reply to this! I actually am not sure at ALL about aliyah after conservative conversation; as far as I know you would not be recognized by the Israeli rabbinate as being halachically Jewish (which could mean problems getting married etc in Israel), but if you have a Jewish grandparent, you can still use the law of return to actually make aliyah (if that applies to you).

Does that make sense? Sorry I can’t be of more help; what I will say is that, for me personally (and I spent a lot of time thinking about this), it was important enough for me to know that I wanted to be halachically Jewish even though initially I was petrified of what that meant in terms of taking on mitzvot. I knew that, eventually, knowing I was not halachically Jewish would make me want to go back, like many before me!, for conversion 2.0!
