Dozens of North American Orthodox rabbis protested to Israel's Interior Ministry following reports that converts under Orthodox auspices are being denied the right to immigrate. "We are concerned that conversions performed under our auspices are being questioned vis-à-vis aliyah eligibility," said a letter delivered to the ministry on Tuesday. "We find this unacceptable, and turn to you in an effort to insure that those individuals whom we convert will automatically be eligible for aliyah as they have been in the past."
