It seems as though, most converts and conversion candidates are upset about the fact that a convert is expected to live in a Jewish neighborhood. A convert who is not white told me she would not feel comfortable in a white neighborhood. Many countless others are still living with family members: grandmothers, brothers and, of course, parents.
See number 6, section c
Another thing they are upset about is that they are looking for 350 hours of study minimum. Please note that since it is recommended that a conversion take two years, this is less than a half hour a day.
Did I mention that when I started my conversion and I called around, the Reform synagogue told me they required a minimum of one year for study before conversion? Did I mention that the RCA has been converting people in ten months. Not just Ivanka, but, I know of someone else who converted in less than a year through the RCA beis din.
What does everyone think? If someone converts with kids, should it take longer or shorter?
