Male Habayit Hayehudi MKs Balk at Move to Put Women on Panel Choosing Chief Rabbi

Only one of the 150 members of the selection committee is currently a woman; a petition circulation in the Knesset asks that 17 places be allocated to women.

Male MKs from Nafatli Bennett's party Habayit Hayehudi have refused to sign a petition aimed at ensuring that women be appointed to the selection committee that chooses chief rabbis.
