The Rabbinate acts as though it is in a position of strength when it has only weakness. The Israeli haredi ignore it; the secular despise it. Now the US community that has long backed it... this community the Rabbinate now attacks. What the Rabbinate does not realize is that if the movement to have freedom of religion spreads to the Orthodox of the US, particularly the Modern Orthodox, there will only be one community - Israeli Religious Zionist - backing it. The Rabbinate, an organization that provides 'jobs' for the unemployable, which interferes in cases on the side of abusers and against Torah scholars, which needs public funds to exist, which has become a mockery of the dreams that inspired it. To it we say now... Your days of numbered.
