The Jerusalem Post reports Israel's Supreme Court just ruled that the decision made by Israel's chief rabbis to allow local rabbis to bar heter mechira produce from their cities is illegal:
According to the court, the Rabbinate's decision harmed farmers as well as the general public. It further stated that the Rabbinate should have heard farmers' representatives as well as the position of the Agriculture Ministry prior to making their decision.
What does this mean?
The ruling said the Rabbinate must authorize other rabbis to provide permits in places where the local rabbis refused to do so.
This is the beginning of what may be a long battle against the overreaching chief rabbis and their haredi puppet masters. But so far the score looks good: Jewish people 1, corrupt, haredi-dominated rabbis 0.
