it's based on the Sources, on the Jewish Bookshelf, not on the whims of some "creative MKs that imagine being Jewish is what you imagine it is. Once upon a time, even Bialik, who was not Halachically Observant supported the moves of the "Shabbat Observers" in Tel Aviv in the twenties because it was a basic value in Jewish life. Yeah, there are basic values in our national life, we can't go around pretending being "like everybody else" and still Jewish as you feel like it. You can call out all the slogans you want, but there is nobody keeping you from eating shrimps in Tel Aviv, or driving to your cottage in the Gallil, or fly off to Cyprus for "the weekend". Ain't no inquistion. You can marry with an overpriced contract, live together until you decide the terms have to be changed, and no rabbi is gonna fine you for not going to him first.. Yes there is a Rabbinate, and no they cannot enforce thier decisions except for a very few cases. Otherwise, you are free to live as you wish. Maybe you are up tight that there is such a thing as a Chief Rabbinate, but that is your privelege. You might even be surprised that there are more people than you imagine that are small "c" conservative that you thought. It that is the source the imagined "inquisistion", you may even discover they really don't care what your think, and mostly leave you alone to your devices. The bottom line is stop chepping about things of which you know nothing about!
