Frank: but he didnt really get it
Frank: he never converted
Frank: so didnt count
YourMoralLeader: how do converts not get it?
Frank: there is a certain understanding of the jewish hierarchy that u dont fully realize unless u are born and trained into it at a young age
Frank: even the really modern dont truely get it
Frank: it is difficult to explain
Frank: it is like a shoe, it needs to fit just right
Frank: sometimes they dont just fit right
YourMoralLeader: what about that tall rabbi at aish who’s a convert?
YourMoralLeader: yaakov deyo?

Frank: i am not telling u anything earth shattering
Frank: every kid out of yula takes a test in this stuff 🙂
YourMoralLeader: do you consider those rabbi rue converts Jewish?
Frank: as far as i know the israeli rabbinate doesnt
Frank: i probably would have to ask a shaila to my rav
Frank: u know of the beis din list?
Frank: there was a list that the rabbinate put out of kosher gior beis dins
Frank: i would assume his was not on the list
Frank: this was about a year ago
Frank: if it is not good enough for a bs organization like the israeli rabbinate, it most likely wouldnt be good enough for me
