The Meretz MKs who filed a petition to the High Court of Justice against the appointment of Rabbi Eyal Karim as the new IDF chief rabbi said on Sunday that the goal of their motion has been achieved following clarifications made by Karim on Wednesday, and that they would not insist on further legal action.

Meretz chairwoman and MK Zahava Galon, along with MKs Michal Rozin and Tamar Zandberg filed their petition asking the High Court to intervene following the revelation of contentious rulings and responses in Jewish law made by Karim on matters of Jewish law.
