Want your adopted son to become Jewish? Act Orthodox – Haaretz – Israel News.

Unfortunately, this is exactly how things work in Israel.  It is shameful.  I won’t comment further for obvious reasons, but I hope some of you will comment.

I know many adoptive parents and many have chosen either to forgo conversion completely, or to do a Conservative conversion.  A conservative conversion will not make the child “Jewish” enough to get married inside the faith in Israel.  Like so many others, the children will need to travel to Cyprus to get married.  If the child is girl, her children will never be considered Jewish.
