A Knesset Interior Committee today exposed appalling data that reveals that rabbis of communities and regional councils in Israel receive a paltry salary of NIS 8 an hour.
MK Yaakov Asher decried this fact, inviting members of the Committee to take a tour of the rabbinical courts and see the building maintenance personnel, equipment and furniture there. “In other careers, they would make more money,” he said.
“This treatment of the sacred vessels,” said Asher, “cannot continue. This is hypocrisy of the state.”
