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 | 1 comments
G-d bless you, Eleanor, may you have a wonderful 70th birthday. Thank you for your comment. I feel absolutely the same way. I am a Jew born in Iraq. From my youth I always questioned the "exclusion" of women, their economic inequality, etc. This borders on the absurd, and is absolutely ridiculous if it were not so tragic. Makes one wonder why they made 90% of the population of Jews that were wiped out during the Holocaust. On Chanukah, in the Psalms, psalm 30 which we read at the beginning of the holidays, we are warned against excessive zeal. These people are the zealots in question.
