According to an editorial in The New York Jewish Week: As a result non-Orthodox Jewish couples are forced to submit to an Orthodox ceremony with an Orthodox rabbi and are compelled to attend classes on family purity[›] No i may marry outside his faith community Hundreds of thousands of i citizens from the former Soviet Union who are not Jewish or whose Jewish ancestry is in doubt are unable to marry at all inside  Orthodox halachic rules apply to converts who want to marry in Under these rules a conversion to Judaism must strictly follow halachic standards to be recognised as valid The rabbinate even scrutinizes Orthodox conversions with some who have converted by orthodox authorities outside of not being permitted to marry in For example a man who converted to Orthodox Judaism in the USA was denied an official in on the grounds that his conversion may not have been legitimate and that the Orthodox rabbi who converted him in Louisiana is not recognized in  In 2006 the Supreme Court voted 6-1 to recognize same-sex s performed in other countries.
