"Dearer to God than all of the Israelites who stood at Mt. Sinai is the convert." --Tanhuma, Lekh Lekha 6:32.
We welcome your application to come before our Bet Din to join the Jewish people as a precious member.
Apply online or download an application form to complete for mailing or scanning and emailing. The current Bet Din fee is $236 which does not have to be paid at time of application. After completing your Candidate Application, click the Calendar where you can schedule a Bet Din appointment if you have one approved by your Sponsoring Rabbi.
Scheduling your Bet Din followed by Mikveh assures you have an appointment at the AJU Community Mikveh. In addition, the Executive Director will forward your application to the Mikveh Administrator who will contact you about preparing for the appointment and paying for it.
Starting July 1, 2021, the AJU Mikveh will be open for in-person Bet Din meetings followed by a Mikveh appointment. The fee for Mikveh with in-person Bet Din will be $175. If you have had a virtual Bet Din, the fee for Mikveh will be $150. This fee is separate from Bet Din and needs to be paid at the time the Mikveh appointment is made. Speak to the Executive Director if these fees pose a barrier to your completing conversion.
