We need to License Rabbis to Protect our Nation

Is a wig actually to cover your head

To cover your head with a wig does it fulfill the purpose? A wig is not the spiritually right way to cover your head, because as long as only one person may think that it is your own hair, then you are not fulfilling the purpose of covering your head. Because you...

Should Rabbis need a license

I strongly believe that any person working as a Rabbi needs to have a license in addition to their Rabbinical Ordinance. And this license should be renewed on a regular basis. Why? Because they are serving the public and people have great trust in them. And as we have seen in to many cases with Rabbis. They are abusing vulnerable people because they can, and they know that people trust them. Many times, without question their motives or the inappropriate behavior that they suggest.

And why should they not need a license when for example tour guides, real estate agents, doctors and lawyers need it to practice?

If you can give a good answer, be my guest!

The last Rabbi was Rav Shmuel Tal, the Head of Yeshivat Torat Chaim in Yad Binyamin. Even though he had having inappropriate relationships with female followers, major leading Rabbis still agree that he can continue to teach and head his Yeshiva but not seek any guidance from him.

But he is not the only Rabbi. We have for example:

  • Moti Elon that abused boys in his Yeshiva not once but twice. The second time after he was welcomed back again.
  • Ezra Sheinberg former head of the Orot HaAri Yeshiva in Safed. Convinced of sexual crimes against 8 women.
  • Eliezer Berland head of the Shuvu Bonim sect for improper sexual relations with women.

Looking forward to your comments!

Public Letter from Rabbis in regards to the Eurovision

Shavua tov from The Holy Land,

Here you find an English translation of a Public Letter published by great Israel Rabbis yesterday Friday in regards to the Eurovision. Among them:

  • Rav Dov Lior
  • Rav Chaim Steiner
  • Rav Tzvi Tau

“We recently learned that Eurovision, which is currently taking place as a public event in the State of Israel, apart from the serious breach of modesty it entails, is also, unfortunately, a mass desecration of Shabbat.”

“This matter is shocking and deeply hurtful and completely contradicts the principles of our existence as a Jewish state,” the rabbis continued. “Since its establishment, the State of Israel has taken upon itself to preserve the sanctity of the Sabbath and the Jewish character in its public space. We cannot accept a situation in which the most elementary values ​​of our people are trampled on all sides.”

“Such phenomena also seriously affect the very foundations of our existence. The secret of the Jewish people lies in its purity, its holiness and its loyalty to its eternal G-dly values. Even when we were in exile we knew how necessary these values ​​were to maintain our existence, and especially during this period in which we’ve been privileged to gather in our land and build the State of Israel.”

Yesterday The Israeli Chief Rabbi Rav David Lau asked the public to add 20 minutes to Shabbos. 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after.
