- Some might say: I’m Jewish because I’ve been converted. But the State of Israel, for example, doesn't recognize Jews who were converted by reform and conservative Rabbis. And to many, even those who converted by the most stringent of laws, are not REALLY Jews, and referred to as “Meguyar” or "Converted" (https://podtail.com/podcast/two-nice-jewish-boys/episode-100-hawaiian-jewish-beauty-queen-takes-on-/)
