Temporary appointments made to Rabbinical High Court

Following a shut-down of the Rabbinical High Court in Jerusalem by the chief rabbis and a petition to the High Court of Justice by a women’s rights NGO, three rabbinical judges were given temporary appointments on Monday to help deal with the back-log of 2,900 cases facing the rabbinical High Court.

The three new appointments, Rabbis Yaakov Zamir, Eliezer Igra, and Ahron Katz, were recommended by Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef two weeks ago and were approved by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Monday for a period of six months.

She said he hoped that they would help alleviate the crisis facing the rabbinical courts, especially the high court, of late.
