The Chief Rabbi of the IDF, Rabbi Rafi Peretz, is under fire after a video clip emerged of him dancing, in uniform, and even trading hats, with Rabbi Yitzchok Shapira, one of the heads of Yeshiva Od Yosef Chai in Yitzhar who wrote the controversial Toras Hamelech, which details, among other things, when a Jew is permitted to kill a non-Jew.
The Purim song, Venahafoch Hu, played as the two danced.
Arutz Sheva reports that MK Omer Bar Lev Labor / Zionist Union, slammed Peretz and said that “handing over the beret is a grave matter, symbolically. Brig-Gen Peretz was giving a stamp of approval and symbolic support to a man who subverted the rule of law and certainly cannot be identified with the IDF’s values.”
