Most Israeli and American Jews want Israel to recognize non-Orthodox marriages, conversions: A large majority of American and Israeli Jews say Israel should recognize marriages and conversions performed by Reform and Conservative rabbis.

A poll conducted by The Jerusalem Post and the American Jewish Committee found that 74 percent of American Jews and 62 percent of Israeli Jews believe the non-Orthodox rites should be recognized. The findings were released Sept. 13. In Israel, the Orthodox Chief Rabbinate controls all religious ceremonies – including marriage, divorce, conversion and burial – and those performed by non-Orthodox clergy are not recognized by the state.
