We would like to draw your attention to the fact that only conversions undertaken under the auspices of a EUPJ recognised Rabbi and Beit Din (Rabbinic Court) will allow you to apply for full membership to a EUPJ community and to make Aliyah to Israel if you so wish.

The Beit Din of Liberal Judaism (U.K., Denmark, Ireland, Beit HaChidush, NL)

Rabbi Mark Solomon & Rabbi Margaret Jacobi

The Beit Din of the Movement for Reform Judaism (U.K.)

Rabbi Dr Jackie Tabick

The Bet Din of the Allgemeine Rabbinerkonferenz (Germany)

The Beth Din of the Dutch Union for Progressive Judaism (The Netherlands)
