ABSTRACT
The article reports that the office of the Ashkenazic chief rabbi of Jerusalem has remained vacant due to a conflict between ultra-Orthodox Jews (haredim) and non-haredim Jews. It is said that Jerusalem city council member Rachel Azaria was forced to leave her position as a result of opposition to female leadership among the anti-Zionist haredi.
