"Chief Rabbis will Reinforce Israeli Society"


MK Elazar Stern (The Movement) welcomed the decision of the Jewish Home to support the proposal to expand the Rabbinical Election Committee with more Israeli demographic representation, including women. "The decision will reinforce Israel as a Jewish democratic state, with elected Chief Rabbis who will successfully contend with the challenges of Israeli society and maintain its identity by improving the Conversion system and other aspects of Rabbinical Services in Israel," said Stern.
