I have spoke to several Orthodox organizations and the answers I receive vary, Chabad in some cases is willing to accept it, many Sephardic Orthodox congregations will accept it, many individual modern orthodox accept it while some groups such as lubavitch and the haradeim would not accept it.

My Sephardi friend is saying that at the Sephardic synagogues it’s not an issue. I consider myself modern orthodox. My current rabbi is a Israeli Jew of Yemenite background and he is also aware of the situation but has accepted it as valid.
