Likud MK Moshe Feiglin has proposed a bill in Knesset that would abolish the election of both an Ashkenazi and a Sephardi chief rabbi and create instead a single, non-ethnic chief rabbi position.

According to Feiglin, the majority of MKs he has spoken with on the issue responded enthusiastically to the proposal, with Yesh Atid MK and Rabbi Dov Lipman the first to sign on to the bill.

“The division between the different communities of the Jewish people is the result of thousands of years of exile, in which the nation preserved the Torah and its faith in an amazing way,” reads the bill, the text of which the MK published on his Facebook page.
