Ombudsman calls to review Sephardi chief rabbi’s status as rabbinical judge

14 6 4

The Selection Committee for Rabbinical Judges must consider whether Chief Sephardi Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef should continue to serve as a judge at the Great Rabbinical Court of Appeals in Jerusalem, the ombudsman of the Israeli judiciary has said.

Former supreme court justice Uri Shoham issued the ruling Sunday in response to a petition against Yosef by the Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism, which complained about Yosef’s controversial past comments on women, Reform Judaism and the High Court of Justice.
