Ruth Institute

A mechanism exists for sincere non-Jews to convert to Judaism, guided by the Beth Din and Ruth Institute of Montreal.

The Beth Din and Ruth Institute is responsible for, supervises and authorizes Orthodox conversions carried out in Montreal. They receive applications and judge each case on its merits. Those with the understanding that they must be fully committed Jew or Jewess are met. This is essential as the Halachic validity of Orthodox conversion is based on a solemn undertaking to fulfil the totality of Judaism.

The Beth Din is available to discuss Conversion issues with interested parties on the clear understanding that there is no commitment on either side. Such discussions will help to clarify the issues and whether indeed Conversion is the best and most appropriate path to follow.
