  1. Sure Orthodox Judaism might be the only denomination not committing religious suicide, but why should that stop anyone from embracing the policies just proven harmful to Judaism in the latest pew poll?

    importing what has failed in the U.S. miserably is SURE to be just great in Israel. I mean, what else does she have to worry about?

  3. What an incredibly biased reporter! He presumes the new law is a good thing, when– in truth– it is NOT! It's another nail in the coffin of Israel as the only Jewish state, as well as another assault on Torah.

  4. I agree its a biased article. ALL that counts is what G-d wants…. what the law is. That should be the only question not empty buzz words like dominating, extreme, haredi. By the way Haredi means Shomer Mitzvot. Why are you using it like a swear word? Whats gotten into the Jewish press?

  5. Anonymous says "I agree its a biased article. ALL that counts is what G-d wants…. what the law is." In other words, What God wants, as interpreted by Rabbis to be the law! What's the difference between that attitude Anonymous, and the Taliban. Seems to me your attitudes leads to the same persecution of anyone who doesn't think like you do – how disgusting !!!!!!

  6. I've got to points to raise on this article. The author (or is it the editor overriding the author?) states that he won't name the particular locality in order not to blemish its name. Is the author cheer leading or a journalist getting to and vetting a story? It becomes difficult for me to take JP seriously, when it acts like a cheer leader.

    Regarding MK Bennett's comments, if Israel is to open up its religious services market as it were, a follow up would include opening them up to legitimizing marriages performed by Rabbis within the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements.

  7. Yeh, it's only so-called haredi rabbis who know what's good for jews and good for Israel

  9. If there is a reaction against haredi Judaism, who made it so?

  11. While some local town rabbis have been ridiculous in demands, the new law instead of limiting their exaggerations opens the door for halakhik disaster such as forbidden marriages with mamzerim, mixed marriages with fake conversions etc. The mis-government has again thrown out the baby with the bath water.
