      IDF Appoints Religious Officer to Top Female Post

      Colonel Rachel Tevet will be the next IDF Chief of Staff's Adviser on Women's Status. Tevet will be elevated to the rank of Brigadier General and will replace the current Adviser on Women's Issues, Brig. Gila Kalifi-Amir. The appointment appears to be politically meaningful, as far as the IDF's policies on religion and gender are concerned.
