Rabbi Stern Advocated for Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem


A committee met Sunday evening for the first time with the aim of promoting the election of Rabbi Aryeh Stern for position of Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem. The position has been vacant for about ten years. Rabbi Stern teachers at Yeshivat Merkaz Harav in Jerusalem and works at the Halacha Brura Institute, both of which follow the teachings of Israel's first Chief Rabbi Rabbi Avraham Yittzak HaCohen Kook.
