Tradition today: ‘Clean hands and a pure heart’

We did not establish a Jewish state after 2,000 years of exile only to see it turn into a center of corruption.

Corruption in governmental officials has become a major concern of Israeli society; and although, since the focus has been on high-ranking officials in the current government, some see this as a partisan issue, it really goes far beyond that.

Considering that major officials, a president, a prime minister, a chief rabbi, government ministers, mayors and others have been found guilty of bribery, corruption and other offenses within the past decade, this is an issue that cannot be ignored. It is and should be a matter of grave concern for all Israelis, no matter what their political views.
