Two of the 47 rabbis who signed a religious edict forbidding Israeli Jews to rent to non-Jews, withdrew their names from the statement on Thursday.

Rabbi Simcha HaCohen Kook and Rabbi Yaakov Edelstein decided to remove their names from the edict following condemnation for the rabbis' views from multiple circles.
