Go בג"ץ Go!
(Elkanah, E Yisroel)
All of a sudden the BaGatz (High Court) in Israel may find some friends in the Charedim of Israel, especially the Chabad haters.
It Seems like some Chabad people in the Yishuv of Elkanah would like that the Mikvah under construction include a pool of בור ע"ג בור according to the Minhag Chabad and the Rabbi won't have it. So now it's up to the High Court to decide whether they're a part of Orthodox Judaism, which would force the Religious Council to heed their demands.
From YnetNews: "The two sides failed to reach a compromise and the High Court will have to decide whether the Chabad movement is part of the Jewish Orthodox group. If not, Chabad will be entitled to a separate and independent funding of a religious group, like any other recognized group."
Which means that the Chabadniks there are hoping that the court rules that they're not part of Orthodoxy so that they can get their Mikveh? What about the local Rabbi?
So which way do the haters root, part of Orthodox Jewry or not?
