Life In Israel: Banning the Rabbanut from performing weddings
A secular organization is promoting a ban on the Rabbanut - they are calling on people to not use the Rabbanut services for marriages.
They are upset with the process employed by the Rabbanut for investigating the Jewishness of the marrying couple. "When they drafted us to the army they did not ask us to prove our Jewishness, they collect our taxes without caring if we are Jewish or not. Why in preparation for the most fortunate day of our lives do we need to go through 7 layers of hell?"
The proposed solution is to teach the Rabbanut a lesson in customer service and customer retention. From today we will no longer wed in the Rabbanut! (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
We should be asked regarding our status as a Jew, in ALL of these situations!
However, our illustrious government calls that racist, and it goes against its "Law of Return." When you think about it, the "Law of Return" covers more goyim than Jews.
In 2001, way back when Ariel Sharon was first elected prime minister, Rabbi MK Benny Elon (Moledeth-National Union) proposed changing the "Law of Return" in the PM's Cabinet, like he had promised to do during his election campaign. The proposal was shot down, and never heard of ever again.
And, by the way, how is it that a friend of mine, already married in the Rabbinuth, and to an Israeli citizen, no less, had to jump through hoops for the Ministry of Interior to prove his Jewishness in order to make aliyah?
Could it be that he wears a black kippah, and lived in B'nei Braq, and that the secular supervisor at the Ministry who hated Haredim had something to do with his requirement to jump through frivolous hoops?
The answer to this question is a definite, "Yes."
Even having protexia from someone high up in the Interior Minister's office did not help. It is the civil servants, with powerful unions, who run things in Israel, not those elected by the people.
So, Kol HaKavod to the Rabbinuth, in spite of its many flaws.
Until the Erev Rav (with and without kippoth) gets filtered out, which may mean first going through an even darker period as they amass even power, before dissolving, the Rabbinuth will probably stick around as a necessary evil. keeping us withing halakhic standards regarding kashruth, marriage and burial, albeit only barely, as their powers continue to be chipped away.
Members of organizations, like the one behind this operation, will demand that their "marriages" be accepted by the Interior Ministry. While at the same time refuse to allow acceptance of a religious man's marriage to a second wife. Rather such a man will be persecuted, indicted and convicted for violating the State's marriage laws. Yet, when his second wife, not considered truly married under the State's, far-left backed, hypocritical laws, would not be allowed to claim benefits as a single parent once she gives birth.
The name of the "secular organization" behind this protest action is Yisra'el Hofshith - A Free Israel. These people have no interest in seeking out what is authentically Jewish. They probably just want to do what they want, and do not know any better than the progressive Western assimilationist mentality stuffed down their throats by the Ashkenazi elite, and its media machine.
Worse yet, the true forces behind organizations like these are more nefarious than you know, using these poor, ignorant, assimilated individuals, many of them probably even Jews, as pawns in their battle against all things authentically Jewish, in their war on the Torah.
Want proof? The proof is in their hypocrisy.
