We exist to assist those without a Jewish community...
Is it possible to convert to Judaism online?
The simple answer is yes. Especially in this digital age and for people who may not have day-to-day access to a Jewish community where they live or work. Converting to any religion is not easy. It takes time and commitment to learning about what it means to be Jewish and live a Jewish lifestyle. This knowledge can be gained through study and worship no matter where you might live. Rabbi Marc Rubenstein has created this online Jewish learning and conversion program to assist individuals who are without a Jewish community.

We Offer Certification for Reform & Conservative
Your Certificate of Acceptance into the Jewish Faith
Rabbi Marc Rubenstein proceeds with caution when it comes to converting individuals to Judaism. He is only willing to complete conversions for those who have been studying Judaism consistently, and who show dedication to living a true Jewish lifestyle.
For the students who take the course, and pass the final exam - Rabbi Marc is qualified to provide his students with an official record of Mikveh Immersion and Declaration of Faith that is certified by the Rabbinical Assembly (which was established in 1901 by graduates of the rabbinical school of the Jewish Theological Seminary).
Not only is this certification recognized by the state of Israel, but today it serves as the international association of Conservative rabbis, and it works to kindle the passion of the Jewish People in the service of God and Torah.

Rabbi Marc Rubenstein considers bringing those from various backgrounds into the Jewish faith as one of his greatest professional accomplishments and privileges. Whether someone is called to the religion for marital or other personal reasons, he has developed a path and timeline that is right for their individual situation.

Also a Hebrew scholar, Rabbi Rubenstein studied at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem before obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Religion & History Studies from American University in Washington, D.C. His rabbinical training was conducted at the Academy for Jewish Religion in NY. He achieved a master's degree in Jewish History from New York University.
