". . .

"Rabbi Chaim Drukman is the head of Bnei Akiva and past Director of the Israeli State Conversion Authority and a leading open voice on conversions in Israel.

Yes, THAT Chaim Drukman from all the articles I've linked in the past years about the problems of conversion in Israel! THAT Chaim Drukman whose conversions were revoked! . . .

If you don't know who Rabbi Druckman is or what the issue is, you might find some of my own posts (and links) concerning the "conversion war" helpful.
