The High Court of Justice criticized the fact that no woman was elected for the committee that appoints dayanim (rabbinical court judges), in response to an appeal by religious women’s organization Emunah. Until lately, at least one woman served in the ten-member committee, but in November the Israeli Bar Association chose two men as representatives.
Despite the fact that the Conflict Of Interests Committee at the Ministry of Justice has determined three times that David Hadari, Deputy to the Mayor of Jerusalem, must either resign that position or resign the position of CEO of the Emunah movement, Hadari retains both positions. The Municipal Legal Counsel and the Quality of Government Movement have both addressed mayor Nir Barkat about this matter, without effecting any change.
