Female Judicial Assistants Now in Botei Din

1

According to an internal document of Israel’s Great Rabbinical Court, women are to begin serving as judicial assistants to dayonim within the precincts of botei din. Until now, they only worked in rabbinical courts’ administrative offices.

Opposed in the past by Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman and other gedolim, the change is the result of an agreement between Rav Dovid Lau and the heads of the botei din.

Rav Lau’s office noted that women advisors have been advising dayonim for two years and that the change was made for convenience sake.
