    So if you had still an older one and was displeased being signaled as religious Jew, the only thing to do was to burn the IC, to make a deposition in the police and ask for a new one where this clausal is omitted. No wasted money for advocates and precious time of our judges (they have more important issues to deal). Besides in 2004, the Supreme Court denied a citizen's petition to reinstate this indicator, stating that the field in the document was meant for statistical collection only, and not as a declarative statement of Judaism. Only in the civil registry (where only the interested has access to), these details are still recorded but they have the same importance than the eyes color or your height.

If St Jerome and other experts are right, Israelis may have thought that 'pot' meant vulva, but actually they were saying cup. Or forehead. Or maybe something else.
