I don't quite understand Heter Mehira to be practized nowadays that Israel is doing so well I don't like the minhag of hareidim who buy from Arabs either May be Otzar beit Hadin should be more in parctice , or buying from FRIENDLY countries some of their produce

Unelected, politically appointed, and represents only a small minority of the Jewish population. THEOCRACY ! It is a major institution that prevent a mass aliyah from countries where the Jews are not Orthodox, or modern Orthodox.

Based on what are you saying such a thing? All Jews are very welcome to Israel and the Chief Rabinate welcome Jews the same way. I feel very happy that they take care of matters so important to all Jews. Sooner or later,all of us will obey G'od and His commandments!

Don't you understand on what Leon is referring ? He's not talking about Jews as you probably are and i certainly am , but conservative and reform converts . I don't share your hope expressed in your last sentence . If this will happen , bye bye to a free and democratic country

Most of the Reform or Conservative Jews in America don't feel any connection to Israel. For example, less than a fourth of them will visit the country in their lifetime. Most of these people won't ever consider alyah... whoever the great rabbi is ! So the "mass alyah" of Leon is just a dream...
