“Ghiur” is the Hebrew term for the conversion to one of the currents of the Mosaic Religion (orthodox, reform, conservative), in accordance with its Halacha. As a religious matter, the Ghiur, or any other conversion, is of no significance for the state or the nation, but only for the specific religious current and the converted person, the other currents having no right of interference.
The above means that a reform rabbi may convert by his Halacha any apt and willing person to become a reform Mosaic, an orthodox rabbi may convert by his Halacha any apt and willing person to become an orthodox Mosaic, etc. It is obvious that an orthodox rabbi is not competent to determine who is a reform Mosaic, as a Catholic priest is not competent to determine who is a Protestant. A further meaning of the above is that ghiur or any other religious conversion does not mean a change of ethnicity or nationality. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that according to the Hebrew Identity Doctrine direct family ties (marriage, child adoption) with an ethnic Hebrew, or citizen of the Hebrew State, accordingly incurs affiliation to the ethnic or national Hebrew identity.
The conversion to the Mosaic Religion is not a process or a procedure of joining the Hebrew people. Thus, if tomorrow a rabbi will convert fifty million Pakistanis and thirty million Nigerians, these will become Pakistanis and Nigerians of Mosaic religion, but would not become Hebrews, as in the past the Khazars, after converting to the Mosaic Religion, became Mosaics by religion but remained Khazars by nationality, and never became Hebrews.
