Shas criticized for politicizing dayanim appointments

The Shas leadership has been strongly criticized for seeking to delay the appointments process of rabbinical judges to both the Supreme Rabbinical Court and the regional rabbinical courts, allegedly in order to stall until the composition of the appointments committee swings back in its favor.

Committee member Dr. Rachel Levmore alleged that Shas has dragged its feet on appointing judges due to political considerations, and is interfering in the choices of religious-Zionist representatives on the committee which has not been accepted practice in the past.
