  1. we are not catholics and we do not need a pope – better to privatize the Rabbinate anyway and end their monopoly – if the modern way is more popular, they will win in the free market of religion without a government monopoly forcing their ways on an unwilling populace – religion is a matter of free will – the forced messianism described here is quite frightening because until Moshiach actually comes, this is impossible to accomplish peacefully – pikuach nefesh is more important than anything but this author doesn't seem to value Jewish life much if he wants to further antagonize our neighbors and put more Jews in danger by going to the Har HaBayis – by having one ”Chief Rabbi” he will not only be more Catholic than the Pope, but more Zionist than Rav Kook – as it was Rav Kook who wisely instituted the two Chief Rabbi system, honoring the position of Rishon LeTzion which existed long before the Zionist movement was even invented

  2. One thing I do agree with you is your statement about the Catholic and papacy…….. There is pure evil in them

  3. I never said the papacy is evil – but it is not Judaism – Judaism has many different streams – it hasn't been monolithic since the Sanhedrin disbanded, and it will not be again until the true Moshiach comes

  4. Usually I think that Feiglin is a crazed ideologue; in this instance, however, he shows that he has the capacity to look beyond the day and into the next 100 years

    Kids whose grandparents came from Morocco are in "Litvish" yeshivahs. Who is their chief rabbi?

    Ultimately, a unified orthodoxy needs to evolve – an Israeli orthodoxy with deference towards the majority – because that's how it's supposed to work.
