      "Lapid Must Learn to Respect the Chief Rabbis"


      Rabbi of Kiryat Ono Ratzon Arusi related to Minister Lapid's call to dismiss the chief Rabbis for ruling against women's IDF service, "Would he dare attempt to sanction the ruling of a judge? The law requires the Chief Rabbis, who have judicial status, to rule on matters of Jewish Law for the public, and they acted by doing so according to the law. Is the Finance Minister attempting to compel the Chief Rabbis to violate the law by threatening them with dismissal for issuing a ruling he disagrees with? The time has come for the Torah leaders of the generation to treated with the proper respect."
