That religious affairs in Israel are part of the State aparatus is not "just in Israel". Many other enlightened nations the "established churches" of the nation are part of the governemental structure. For some reason they do very well, thank you very much. Other than that, for some reason I am not sure whether these women are the being used as the bully pulpits of the Reform and Conservative movements The real change will come when women are at the head of these movements--the Messiah has yet to arrive when that happens. IMO, what is more important in Israel is that the status of women in the work place, in the economy, and in general, reaches some kind of equality. Consider the bias among some employers not hire sngle parents, or promote men rather than promote equally qualified women, or pay men more than their female personnel, and a host of situations that work against women. One "token rabbi", or a few "token women" observing Judaism as they see fit, is lovely, but it don't pay the bills, lady. When women don't have to look up at a "glass ceiling" every time they come to work, when their salaries are commensurate to the those of the men that work in the same organization. When former happens that the issue of equality in Jewish religious life will be there as a matter of course.
