i must have been mistaken. looks like a theocracy to me. Just who are these rabbis to tell people where they can pray and why? what right or authority do they have? who appointed them? do they even know the first thing about judaism or are they mired in a dark ages ghettoized version of some archaic, old style, primitive customs? oops, I forgot. I guess they didn't hear about the emancipation - or the rennaisance. But then, isn't it true that religious education in Israel sort of ends with the 17th century? Oh well, at least they get their madrasahs funded at public expense. besides, they can always say that women can't go to mecca either, so there! they are just part of world-wide trend....
