Candidates Being Interviewed for Rabbinical Courts by Livni


This evening (Wednesday) 15 candidates were interviewed for positions as judges in rabbinical courts.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said, "We have just finished interviewing the latest batch of candidates for judgeship in the Chief Rabbinical Court. We sat there for hours, all the members of the committee, and spoke with the 15 candidates. It was a long and tedious procedure, but we needed to find those best suited to the job, not those who would interpret (Jewish) law in its most rigid manner," Livni explained.
