The Rabbinate Is the Problem

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2010

The rabble of rabbis who are the State of Israel's official owners of Judaism are a counterfeit product, pretenders to a piety they daily demean. Their intimate connection to base political fighting, and constant attempts to coerce and manipulate the law and democratic ideals of the State of Israel is a disgrace. For Judaism's sake, it is time to put the separation between religion and state - too often considered unthinkable - on the table.
