  • In Part 1 & Part 2 we looked at some of the halachic and hashkafic underpinning of conversion.
  • We need to look briefly in this shiur at some of the halachic requirements for mila, tevila and korban.
  • We then turn to the two most controversial questions in the conversion debate - (i) to what extent does the convert have to be observant in Torah and mitzvot, and how could non-observance affect the validity of the conversion? and (ii) to what extent do other motivations for conversion, eg marriage, prevent the conversion from proceeding?
