In a landmark ruling, the High Court of Justice has ruled that people who convert to Judaism in Israel through the Reform and Conservative movements must be recognized as Jews for the purpose of the Law of Return, and are thus entitled to Israeli citizenship. The 8-1 decision was the culmination of a 15-year legal battle, and was handed down by the court which noted that the state had failed in this period to resolve the issue. The ruling was assailed by ultra-Orthodox political parties and Israel's chief rabbis, who do not recognize the pluralistic streams of Judaism. KAN reporter Naomi Segal asked Rabbi Noa Sattath, director of the Israel Religious Action Center of the Reform movement about the significance of the court ruling.
