Chief Rabbi Yosef asks to be named as defendant in case against Karim

In a highly unusual step, Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef asked to be named as a defendant in the High Court appeal against the appointment of Rabbi Eyal Karim to the post of IDF chief rabbi.

The religious and rabbinical establishment reacted with outrage on Monday to an interim decision of the High Court to freeze Karim’s appointment and its request for him to submit a declaration regarding a contentious ruling of Jewish law he made in 2002.
