It is time for either Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat or Religious Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett to step up and lead the way to the nomination of a Zionist chief rabbi for the capital city.

There are many great public workers in Israel, who do a great job applying the policy decided by others. However, there are very few leaders that are able to define important goals and then go out to reach them. These leaders are the people who end up defining the history of the Jewish people and of the State of Israel, since they are the ones who end up defining which direction this history will take.
