Israel Rabbinical Body Charged
With Falsification of Documents

Gideon Hausner, Israel's Attor-
ney General, charged at a hear-
ing before the Israel Supreme
Court that official documents of
the Chief Rabbinate Council
submitted to him in the dispute
over elections of new Chief
Rabbis had been falsified.
Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak
Nissim responded to the charge
with a demand to the Attorney
General for a retraction.
The Supreme Court inter-
rupted its summer recess to
hear two complaints against the
validity of nominations for the
board which is to elect new
Ashkenazic and Sephardic Chief
Rabbis. Rabbi Nissim is a candi-
date to succeed himself.
The elections have been de-
layed for months. due to con-
flict between the Chief Rab-
binate Council and Rabbi
Yaacov Toledano, Israel's Minis-
ter of Religious Affairs. The
two cases were joined as one
for the hearing because the
arguments were identical.
The Attorney General ap-
peared on behalf of the Minis-
try of Religious Affairs after
the court had rejected a request
from the Chief Rabbinate Coun-
cil that Rabbi Toledano appear
personally to answer the corn-


wrir4ri pnvi

plaints of alleged irregularities
in his efforts to constitute a
nominations board.
After Hausner made the
charge - of falsification, Chief
Justice Cohen interrupted to
point out the "extreme gravity"
of the accusation. The Attorney
General replied that he had
proof to back the charge.
He cited what he termed
evidence that an original hand-
written protocol had noted that
certain members of the Coun-
cil had voted against revoking
the accreditation of the Coun-
cil's representative, Rabbi
Amram Aburavia, but that in
a typewritten copy submitted
to him, changes allegedly had
been made to record those
members as abstaining.
He also cited the record on
Rabbi Obadia Hadayah as being
listed in the handwritten cony
with a negative vote and in
the typewritten version as hav-
ing abstained. In his letter de-
manding a retraction, Rabbi
Nissiin wrote that several type-
written copies had been made
of the protocol which was origi-
nally taken down in longhand
and that one of the typewrit-
ten copies had been signed by
Rabbi Hadayah.
The post of Ashkenazic Chief
Rabbi has been vacant since
the death last year of Rabbi
Isaac Halevi Herzog.
