Tzohar Seeking Change Ahead of Chief Rabbinate Elections

| |

The Tzohar Zionist rabbinical organization as launched a public information campaign designed to encourage a new approach to religious leadership within the Israeli Chief Rabbinate.

The organization is suggesting that the Rabbinate be strengthened through a change in its policy with regards to State and religion, but it has been estimated that this is the opening shot in Tzohar’s election campaign for the position of chief rabbi.

Under the headline “His legacy – our path,” which refers to Rabbi Kook, the campaign includes newspaper and bus advertisements, as well as a mission statement outlining the organization’s vision for a revised Chief Rabbinate, which were distributed to more than 200,000 people over the weekend, JTA reported.

There is even a Facebook app where users can choose the issues they believe the Rabbinate should focus on.
