New tender says it is intended for both men and women – but requires applicants to already work for the rabbinical court, effectively disqualifying female candidates.04:02 09.02.16 | 0 comments
This is not a piece of "yellow" journalism, Amal Nashashibi (you mean "tabloid," don't you, dear?). Esther Wiener's descendents are entitled to Israeli citizenship, whether she remarried and ceased to be a Nashashibi (a big deal), or not. Her offspring are still Jewish according to Halakha, even if it displeases you to recognize the fact. This is the kind of racism that is typical of the "underdog," and exists in equal measure among the Sephardi Jews. They are the ones who claim to be discriminated against, but woe betide anyone who presumes to marry one of them - oy, save us from the hard-done-by Sephardi mother-in-law.
