We know from our sources that converts were not accepted during the reigns of King David and King Solomon. The reason given is that when times are good for Am Yisrael it is impossible to ascertain a potential convert's true motives for expressing a desire to convert. The same holds (or did historically) for those suspected of wanting to convert for the sake of marriage, so anyone already romantically involved with a Jew would also not be taken under consideration for conversion.
How much more so as we approach the age of redemption when our sages tell us, once again, the option for conversion will end. But, there are those who misunderstand the signs of the times, as well as those with malicious motives, and reckon (wrongly) that the doors are now swinging wide to accept all the goyim as some type of "quasi-Jews." Anyone who "feels" he is a Jew or who "feels" a kinship with the Jewish people (or the State of Israel) must be allowed to identify as such!
The head of the Conservative movement’s rabbinical organization sharply criticized Israel for reportedly deciding not to recognize Uganda’s Jewish community, whose members converted under Conservative auspices.
Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, who leads the Rabbinical Assembly, said the Conservative movement was “shocked and extremely outraged” at the decision, which she called “unlawful.”This is the clearest sign yet that we are at the very end and in reality the door is swinging closed... forever.
