This is what we get by accepting religious parties in a coalition govt. These Rabbis are crazy, and immoral. Am I to now believe that my perfectly kosher Orthodox get gotten by the Orthodox Rabbinate in NYC is no longer good? If you wanted to push me over from being just a secular jew to a total athiest, you have now succeeded. Israelis, we must join forces, oust the Rabbinate, oust those who collaberate with them to stay in power. Demand the govt to cut off their allowance. Then see how they will change their tune. Judaism does not have a central "church". Never has. Time to get rid of the one called The Rabbinate of Israel.
