Deri seeks to pad rabbinate’s selection committees

Interior Minister and Shas Party chairman Arye Deri is seeking to weight the selection committees for regional chief rabbis in favor of the rabbinic establishment, by submitting a proposal to the Knesset Interior Committee to change the balance of the selection committees for such rabbis.

At present, the committees, which fill vacant rabbinical posts for 32 regional councils, are comprised of the chairman of the council, another public representative of the region and a delegate chosen by the Religious Services Ministry.
