Faced with this reality, all those who consider themselves leaders in our community, must come forth and make their position clear, rejecting such conduct forthrightly, lest moral decay spreads through our civil service and public’s trust in the government plummets.”

A summary of where the law stands regarding alleged wrong doing by the premier, as well as timely suggestions for reform, are in order.

For the first time since 2013- a decline in the number of ultra-Orthodox men in the workforce

Deporting people against their will to the countries they escaped from evokes strong and disturbing recollections of dark episodes in Jewish history.
