Israel’s Supreme Court has ruled that public ritual baths must accept all prospective converts, including those undergoing conversion through the Reform and Conservative movements.

… The case, including appeals, took 10 years to wend its way through the courts, said Orly Erez Likhovski, director of the legal department at the Reform Movement’s Israel Religious Action Center, which sued the state on behalf of the Reform and Conservative/Masorti movements.

“We view this as another step toward equal treatment of the non-Orthodox movements in Israel and specifically a step toward full recognition of non-Orthodox conversions in Israel, Likhovkski said.
