"It's crazy to put mothers in jail. Our rabbis always taught us: The law isn't above the rabbis; the rabbis are above the law." Ultra-orthodox women are not taught Talmud, the fountainhead of Jewish law. As such, they do not have a serious understanding of the Law, but follow what they are told to the best of their shallow understanding. The rabbis are NOT "above the law" in the modern sense. They are interpreters of the law, so that in effect they can make laws by interpreting the written law. This is also what the Israeli Supreme Court, and every modern court, does. In any case, I love the innocence of these women, so child-like.
