As I have said before, I am an EU citizen while my girlfriend is Israeli. We live together for the last 2.5 years, we also planing to get married as soon as we get to Finalnd (as I mention on the other topic, that's because Israel has a lack of civil marriges).
Which RP application would be quicker for my grilfriend: Based on our 2.5 years living together, or base on our very-fresh marige agreement?

I'm just not sure how much your being an EU citizen but not a Finnish citizen, and being just arrived to Finland yourself, complicates the granting of her RP.
That's a funny interpretation.
Wikipedia wrote:Orthodox halachic rules apply to converts who want to marry in Israel. 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 Israel not being permitted to marry in Israel. For example, a man who converted to Orthodox Judaism in the USA was denied an official marriage in Israel 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 Israel.
According to an editorial in The New York Jewish Week:
As a result, non-Orthodox Jewish couples are forced to submit to an Orthodox marriage ceremony with an Orthodox rabbi and are compelled to attend classes on family purity.Family purity[›] No Israeli may marry outside his faith community. Hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens from the former Soviet Union who are not Jewish or whose Jewish ancestry is in doubt are unable to marry at all inside Israel.
