Ger in goyish place of worship

undefined

Rabbi Chaim Tabasky

10 Sivan 5766
Question
Can a goy who wants to become a ger enter a non-Jewish place of worship for secular purposes (to get a paycheck from someone who is there) and then immediately leave?
Answer
If it is a place of worship which has idols, then the non Jew may should not enter into the sanctuary itself, but may enter the offices in the building or an adjoining room. In a situation where there is no other option a Rabbi should be consulted. If there are no idols, (Baptist, for instance) there is no problem.
