Sample text

64 Maimonides’ instruction is unequivocal: Conversion in Jewish Tradition You should recite everything as it is, and do not change anything. Rather, you should pray as every Jewish citizen does, whether alone or in public. The critical point is that it was Abraham our Father who taught the entire nation, who gave them wisdom and who made known to them the truth and unity of God.  —there is no difference here between us and you. ” He cites the Palestinian Talmud’s rejection of the Mishnah and concludes his responsum.

The view quoted in the name of Rabbi Nehemiah states without equivocation that conversions must be free of any ulterior motive or they are null and void. But Rav disagrees. 42 Geirim is not the only source to address directly the motivations of the convert. A baraita in the tractate Kiddushin of the Palestinian Talmud makes a similar claim: “One who converts out of love, and similarly, a man for a woman or a woman for a man, or converts of Kings’ Tables [who sought access to royalty] or converts out of fear of lions43 and the conversions [in the time of] Mordecai and Esther—these, we do not accept.

The second position says that the conversion is valid no matter what the convert’s motivations might have been but that those motivations should affect a court’s decision as to whether to convert the person.
