Chief Rabbinate Appoints a Spokesman


The Chief Rabbinate of Israel has for a first time appointed a spokesman, Ziv Maor, a member of the dati leumi community.

Maor, 28, becomes the first ever official spokesman of the Chief Rabbinate. He served as a spokesman for Ichud HaLeumi MK Uri Ariel in the outgoing 18th Knesset. From there he became the director of Israel’s Media Watch organization.

While many believe the Chief Rabbinate of Israel is an organ of the Ministry of Religious Services, it is not. In actuality, it reports directly to the Prime Minister’s Office.
