Discussion and opening your file
After two months of learning in the class, we will set two concentrated days where the students will come for its first meeting with the court.
This meeting is to acquaint yourselves with the three judges of the special court who you will meet at the end of the process as well; this is your chance to meet them now, which will help to reduce the fear and pressure you may have of the court.
The meeting is about half an hour long up to 45 minutes. Please arrive a little earlier. Be patient sometimes there are setbacks in court. Please appear in appropriate dressing: slacks, sleeves and kipa for men, long skirts (pass the knees) and sleeves pass the elbow.
This meeting is also an opportunity to arrange the bureaucracy involved in registering for conversion. The following list of documents you need to bring with you to the court at the first meeting to open your file. Please note that is it very important to keep a copy of all documents you fill out and submit.
Interview with the court coordinator.
The second meeting is an interview with the court director. It’s scheduled about half a year after the first. In this interview you will share with the coordinator your progress in the process and you will receive points to ponder for the continuation. Your teacher will accompany you to the meeting.
The court hearing
Finally the exciting moment we are all waiting for. Scheduled about two months after the second meeting. Invite your accompanying family, bring letters of recommendation. Your teacher will accompany you and be there with you in those critical moments.
