Senior rabbis in religious Zionism, their sons Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, Rabbi Laman Melamed, Rabbi Dov Lior and others, who organized into a group called the “Union of Rabbis Who Love the Torah and the Land”, tonight (Wednesday) attacked the moves recently made blue and white to replace the terms “Father’s name” And “Mother’s Name” in official state forms for “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.”
The Union of Rabbis, Lovers of the People and the Torah, wrote in a document on their behalf that “Israeli Torah and tradition recognize only one basic family framework: father, mother and children. The graduates of the religious public the traditional family values.
Do not accept educational content that belittles the family or gives legitimacy to another type of family. Recently, various bodies have sprung up in the Israeli public that have been working to undermine the familiar family framework of the people of Israel for generations. Some act openly but some act indirectly and cunningly and give legitimacy to a family of a different kind that does not deserve its name, and is not accepted in the Israeli tradition. We appeal to the public to do everything in their power to increase and strengthen the value of the family in the Israeli public. “
