‘Religious Freedom’ Org: Rabbis Barred Complaints


The Hiddush organization for “religious freedom” has filed complaints against three rabbis from the hareidi city of Modiin Illit. The group is accusing the three of preventing parents from complaining over ethnic discrimination in schools.

The parents were threatened with ostracism if they went to secular authorities to complain, the group charged. Among those facing a complaint is Rabbi Yisrael Zicherman of the Ahuza Brachfeld neighborhood.
