A booklet distributed to officers by the IDF’s Chief Rabbi, Brigadier General Rafi Peretz, contains political views. The booklet presents the thought of Rabbi Eli Sadan who discusses the limits of “governmental morality”, explains the cause of “Price Tag” pogroms and claims that the IDF does not discriminate against women.

The Military Rabbinate recently distributed to soldiers a presentation for Hanukka containing a photo of the Wailing Wall [sacred to Jews] but replacing the adjacent Dome of the Rock [sacred to Muslims] with a halo of light. In response to queries, the IDF Spokesman replied that the slide shows an illustration image of Jerusalem during the Second Temple Period, when the Dome of the Rock did not yet exist. This despite the fact that the slide does not illustrate the Second Temple itself, of which the Wailing Wall is all that remains today, but does show an Israeli flag.
