The chief rabbis, Rabbi Avraham Shapira and the Rishon Lezion Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, wrote in 1984, stating: "They are the ones who teach in their community every day. I regret that there are those who do not trust the long hand of the Chief Rabbinate."

Your Honor, no, you are absolutely right.


Only rabbis will decide who is a Jew.

The chairman of the Committee for National Infrastructure Initiatives and Jewish Religious Services, MK Yulia Malinowski (Israel Beiteinu), also responded to the interview: "He claimed that a Jew is only a person who accepts the yoke of Torah and mitzvos.

In an interview given by the Chief Rabbi, Rabbi Lau to Israel this weekend, he claimed that a Jew is only a person who accepts the yoke of Torah and mitzvos.

That is, according to the esteemed rabbi, all Jews who do not keep the commandments are actually non-Jews - good to know and thanks for the clarification, we will already continue from here. @ Hanan_green @IsraelHayomHeb pic.twitter.com/7aiw54J3UE

Katya Kopchik, director of the Russian-speaking Israelis in the "Free Israel" movement, said of the interview: Humiliating, and especially to stop letting a small minority dictate the lifestyles of us all. "

The chairman of the Noam party, MK Avi Maoz (Religious Zionism), in response to Minister Kahana's words: "The minister's boldness crosses every border. He fortifies his positions.

"Where is the audacity to lead fateful moves to the Jewish identity of the state, moves with broad halakhic significance, without the backing of the chief rabbis, the chief rabbinate council and all the great men of Israel?"
