I remember years ago when the education system was really in the pits in Israel, Dr Beilin attempted to suggest that we should export our Jewish education and system to the Diaspora....I laughed. Dear Zev Davis, not all Israel or Jewish ideas are the best. We havent managed to develop fair leadership in Israel where Rabbis are concerned, and you are criticizing one of the greatest developments in ages???! Involving 50 percent of the Jewish population in leadership is a small thing to you?! If it were up to Israeli Jews alone, without foreign intervention, things like culture,science, education, Democracy, arts, leadership and more would have been behind in Israel!
