Rabbi Melamed: Feminists Inciting Against Rabbis


In his weekly column to be published Thursday in the Besheva newspaper Rabbi Eliezer Melamed has slammed the religious feminist group "Kolech" for receiving funding from the EU backed New Israel Fund.

"The Women of Kolech are interested in the assimilation of Judaism by Western leftist culture. Its ok to debate issues but they have proven that in the cultural struggle between Judaism and Western culture they have chose the leftist side, and not the Jewish one."
