I disagree with this possible proposition of abolishing the sector a nation also requires for moral guidance, community supports and security supports. It's one thing to have different Jewish denominations which can get along and fulfill the requirements of a pluralistic society which Israel has become, but it's another to do away with the very essence of what Judaism's Orthodox communities have sustained for the nation and worldwide. I think that if the Chief Rabbinate is eradicated, than there would be religious anarchy and any group which counters Judaism's laws can arise. Even Orthodox Judaism has evolved over time and communities adjust accordingly to survive. So what did the Babylonians, Assyrians, Romans, Greeks, Crusaders, Ottoman Empires and recently, the German Nazis attempt to do ? They attempted to annihilate the Jewish nation.
