Anshel Pfeffer is totally right in this piece. "There is no hope for the Chief Rabbinate of Israel". I really don't care what rabbis are the new chief rabbis in Israel. I am a secular and zionist and modern Jew. The ultra-orthodox trend is totally mistaken and opposite to my world and Jewish world's view. They are not legitimate: they are scared of conservative or reform rabbis, so they compete only between orthodox rabbis. They are not my rabbis.
