Tzohar rabbis: Delay rabbinic court appointments

The rabbinical organization of Tzohar asked Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann to delay the appointment of the rabbinical court judges who were chosen earlier this week, claiming that the process of their appointment was rife with legal difficulties, Army Radio reported. According to the report, the Tzohar rabbis claimed that the appointments had not been made through relevant considerations. Out of the 15 new judges who were nominated at the beginning of the week, 12 are haredi.
