Registration Deadline Approaching in Jerusalem Rabbinate Race


sternIn another day the registration process for candidates in the Jerusalem Chief Rabbinate race will close and the candidates will be locked in. The question remains is just how many more rabbonim will enter the race at the last moment.

As of Monday morning 12 Tishrei, the candidates registered in the race include Rabbi Moshe Toledano Shlita, Rabbi Chaim Amsellem, Rabbi Eliyahu Schlesinger and Rabbi Aryeh Stern.

There is much speculation pertaining to a number of possible last-minute candidates, including Rabbi David Yosef, Rabbi Shlomo Amar, and Rabbi Yaakov Shapira. The election is set to take place on 27 Tishrei.
