I do not intend to try to determine which is right in this battle - I am not a Rav. BUT I WILL SAY - it is inappropriate to criticize Rabeyim on either side of the isle for voiceing halachik opinions - that is their role and responsibility. It is an aspect of JEWISH law we must all respect. ISRAEL WAS FOUNDED AS A JEWISH STATE - ITS THAT SIMPLE - THE RABANUT THEREFORE PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN DIRECTING ITS ACTIONS AND INTERPRETING G-DS LAWS. THEY HAVE AN OBLIGATION NOT TO BE SILENT.
