Bringing into the limelight the fight against judicial activism and separation of powers in Eretz Yisrael
At Mike Pompeo’s recent book signing, hosted by Rabbi Dr. Joe Frager’s Israel Heritage Foundation, I became acquainted with Simcha Dan Rothman, Member of the Knesset from the Religious Zionist Party, and his detailed list of endeavors to reshape Israel’s Ministry of Justice, all aimed at bringing back trust and integrity to the Jewish state’s Supreme Court. For a quarter century, Israel’s Supreme Court has essentially run a coup d’état, yielding more power than the country’s prime minister, an oddity in a democracy. With the most right-wing party in power to date, an overhaul of Israel’s legal system is within reach. Israel’s public faith in the judicial system has plummeted to a historic low, and it is time to restore power back to the People, a largely conservative population, via the legislators they elected to office. The climate of the new Knesset favors our Orthodox ideals and values.
