      Orbach Reiterates Support for Rabbi Stav


      Senior Citizens’ Minister Uri Orbach (Bayit Yehudi) reiterated on Tuesday evening that he supports the candidacy of Rabbi David Stav for the position of the Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi, writing on his Facebook page that "it’s time to breathe life into the Chief Rabbinate and tomorrow we must rise above personal and family considerations."

      Orbach, who is a member of the electoral body, added that "tomorrow I will elect those rabbis who distanced themselves from the effect and style of the Shas party. Because the Chief Rabbinate, which is dear to us, needs an awakening that can only come from true Torah people who do not fear threats.”
