View of the London Beis Din and Conference of European Rabbis regarding EJF

(Translated by Daniel Eidensohn).

Thursday, December 24, 2009

Our official view,

In accordance with the decision made in Kislev by the standing committee in Moscow,
the Conference of European Rabbis (CER) is absolutely opposed to the intervention of
the organization Eternal Jewish Family (EJF) in matters of conversion in Europe. That is
because the EJF is engaged is proselytization of non-Jews which is against the accepted
time honored practice of our communities and thus creates the danger of breaching the
protective walls of our religious faith in Europe. Furthermore since the leaders of the EJF
have caused an incredible profanation of G-d's name and have thereby besmirched the
name of Orthodox rabbis in the whole world in recent weeks, we the leaders of the holy
Jewish communities in Europe call upon the organization Eternal Jewish Family (EJF)
not to hold their scheduled mixed seminar in Munich. We are warning them, that if they
don't listen to this call, that we will turn to the rabbis who were invited to give
presentation at this seminar to boycott it.

Signed by,

The Beis Din of London, the State Beis Din and the Conference of European Rabbis.
