Livni, Bennett propose bill to do away with separate chief rabbis for Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews
Bill would no longer allow separate Ashkenazi and Sephardi chief rabbis, but won't go into effect for another decade if passed.
A bill seeking to abolish the practice of having two chief rabbis of Israel, an Ashkenazi one and a Sephardi one, was jointly proposed Monday by the Hatnuah and Habayit Hayehudi parties.
