Chief rabbi of Ethiopian community to get 6-month extension from ministry

The Religious Service Ministry says it will now extend the tenure of the Chief Rabbi of the Ethiopian Community Yosef Hadane by six months, after having previously decided to push him into retirement.

The decision comes following heavy criticism, including from Chief rabbis David Lau and Yitzhak Yosef, and amid allegations that the decision was made due to Hadane’s opposition to discriminatory practices against Ethiopians when registering for marriage.
