Shalom

I was just wondering:

Hypothetically speaking, if a new convert to Judaism were to migrate to Israel, would they be fully accepted?

If not, what forms of discrimination might they face?

Is it easy to remain in Israel once you've arrived?


Thank you!

The conversion would be scrutinized by the Rabbinical authorities and determined to be authentic or not which would affect personal status issues like being allowed to marry in Israel, burial in a Jewish cemetery, etc. Dealing with the other government bureaucracies and the general public there is more widespread acceptance or indifference to converts. For citizenship coming from almost all
countries it will not be an issue.

you would need "proof" of your conversion by the Beis Din that 'authorized' it. Ask for a signed, sealed (and notarized) certificate, as well as at least one nationally-recognized reference. If you have any specific questions, I would suggest posting at aish.com, they deal with this stuff better. Or ask the rabbi of a local chabad or orthodox shul
