Are all means to prevent a Jewish man from marrying a gentile considered kosher?
According to a ruling by Rabbi Zalman Melamed, head of the Beit El Yeshiva and one of the most prominent rabbis in the Religious Zionist movement, the answer is yes.
Thus, the Halacha (Jewish law) even permits a person to go to the Interior Ministry and report a case in order to prevent a fictive conversion.
