The core-issue is not one of Orthodoxy vs. Reform. It is rather the nature of the relationship between representatives of a religious tradition and what is, for all other purposes and appearances, a modern, secular government. There is a clear element of irrationality in an arrangement by which a group of clergy (whoever they may be) and the right of citizenship or even of residence in a nation-state. Such an arrangement rests upon ideological assumptions that Israelis by and large do not accept. It is time for Israel to go beyond that bizarre arrangement and strive to become a nation-state resting upon more rational foundations like other states.
