Knesset members from the party «Israel Our home» Yulia Malinovskaya and Oded Forer opposed the bill, which was initiated by chief Rabbi of Israel. David Lau and Yitzhak Yosef are going to give the rabbinical courts the right to establish and maintain «black lists» of citizens, whose Jewishness seems to them doubtful. And checking the intent of the rabbis, will be made arbitrarily, and these lists will be recorded even people who have not appealed to the Rabbinate to confirm Jewishness.
Julia Malinovskaya demanded that the Minister of justice to immediately stop the promotion of this bill, and addressed to the Chairman of the parliamentary Commission for internal Affairs with the requirement to convene an emergency meeting. According to the Deputy, the new idea of the Rabbinate directly aimed against immigrants and violates basic human rights, as well as the most basic legal norms.
In turn, Oded Forer said that did not expect from the chief rabbis as absurd and discriminatory initiatives
«She suggests that it is necessary to submit a bill that will give the right to make lists of «doubtful rabbis», and re-weigh the authority of the Rabbinate» — quoted by Oded forera press service of the Yisrael Beiteinu.
