Today’s Historic Rabbanut Exams
After a legal battle, today four women are taking (H) the Israeli Chief Rabbinate semikhah exam in the laws of kashrut. Last year the religious women’s organization Emunah petitioned the High Court of Justice to force the Rabbinate to allow women to take the exam and become mashgihot kashrut (kashrut supervisors). In December, before the High Court of Justice decided in the case, the Chief Rabbinate gave the OK and today four women are taking the exam.
I am not sure how this will affect the other appeal for women to be allowed to take other semikhah exams offered by the Chief Rabbinate.
