    I think the term "ultra-orthodox" is a term that, like any "religious" term, is up for some debate. So perhaps I shouldn't have used it. However, the Israeli Rabbinate has moved increasingly to the "right" over the past few years, to the point that even Modern Orthodoxy in the States has been somewhat isolated, let alone Conservative or Reform. I went over the Israeli Rabbinate endorsed manditory reading list for Canadian Orthodox Converts. In them, Reform Judaism is blamed for the Holocaust, and Jews are described as being Holy to a degree that "makes them a virtually seperate species that are alone worthy of the title man." I'm not sure how to describe that. Maybe it's not Ultra-Orthodoxy. But it is crazy and flat out racist. Those books are, by being the direct reading list of the Israeli Rabbinate, directly endorsed and sponsored by the Israeli Government. Which is state sponsored irrationality and racism.
