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
Judaism has floureshed and spread throughout the world. It has not been dependent on a piece of land or the Hebrew language. It is a people that share values and a relationship to God. Judaism has allowed diversity within and accepted the diversity of its many neighbors. By being independent of any state it has avoided the stigma of nationalistic pride and the evils that come with such pride. Zionism is not Judaism. Zionism is a political event that does damage to Judaism. Zionism has become an intolerance of diversity within Judaism and an expression of arrogance towards others. Einstein once expressed a fear that Israel would develop a narrow nationalism that would damage Judaism. I sense that has been happening. Zionism is a nodern political event that will pass but leave damage behind.
