Sephardi chief rabbi under fire for ‘lenient’ approach to IDF conversions

Sephardi Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar has come under intense criticism from leading figures in the Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox community for what they consider his overly lenient attitude toward conversions performed under the auspices of the Israel Defense Forces.

On Monday, aides to Amar tried to defuse the controversy by denying that he ever gave his blessing to conversions performed in the military.
