Revitalizing the Law of Return for All Jews, by Rabbi Asher Lopatin

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/morethodoxy/item/revitalizing_the_law_of_return_for_all_jews_20091109

The Law of Return is currently excluding many converts from gaining Israeli citizenship. Rabbi Lopatin suggests that in order to make the Law of Return work, it must be applied to all those who self-identify as Jewish. To function as a refuge and homeland for all Jews, Israel must accept as citizens all who self-identify as Jewish - whatever their shape or color.
