Unfortunately Rabbi Metzger is no stranger to controversy. He was barred by Former Sephardi Chief Rabbi Bakshi Doron from running for the post of Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv because he was under a Rabbinic investigation for something inappropriate. That investigation was underway when the position for Chief Rabbi was up for election. Ironically, because he didn't hold any Rabbinic office at the time, he was technically able to run for the position of Chief Rabbi and remarkably, he was elected. Immediately after his election he was publicly accused of some sexual impropriety or another and thus started his carreer on a somewhat inauspicious note. Now some may argue that this type of behaviour is fairly common amongst elected officials in Israel, but it must be agreed that whatever we may think of the office of Chief Rabbi, the Rabbis must be held accountable according to the strictest moral standards and cannot even be associated with unbecoming behaviour. So goodbye Rabbi Metzger!
