Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, son of former Sefardic chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, is proposing the Rabbinute remove the smicha (ordination) of rabbis convicted of sex crimes and sexual impropriety:
…In a letter sent to the members of the Chief Rabbinate, Eliyahu wrote, "Someone in the position of a rabbi should be a man of values, moral and conscience, an impeccable man, and certainly innocent of forbidden sexual relations.
"It is our duty as rabbis and members of Israel's Chief Rabbinate to set rules according to which a man who is suspected of forbidden relations is temporarily suspended from his role. A man who confesses must not be able to serve as rabbi in a public role."…
While the idea is good, I would only point out that one of the current chief rabbis along with other sitting rabbis would seemingly need to be suspended under this proposed rule. The Rabbinute is set to debate Rabbi Eliyahu's idea this Thursday.
