Religious Services Ministry to reconsider Hadane’s tenure extension application after uproar

The Religious Services Ministry announced on Tuesday that they are now considering an extension of the tenure of the Chief Rabbi of the Ethiopian community Yosef Hadane.

The Religious Services Ministry’s initial decision to deny the extension allegedly because of his opposition to discriminatory marriage applications practices stirred an uproar in the community.

According to a report by Army Radio, Hadane was denied an extension to his service as chief rabbi of the community after he reached the retirement age of 67.
