Does The U.S. Now Have A Chief Rabbinate?

An article in support of the RCA by Elli Fischer

«The RCA, a professional institution, must nurture its relationship with Israel's Rabbinate.
There is a certain amount of irony in this arrangement. Although Rabbi Weiss has been a member of the RCA for decades, he has long criticized it for kowtowing to the demands of the Rabbanut. His insistence on the autonomy of every community rabbi led him to found the International Rabbinic Fellowship in 2006 and the now-defunct Fellowship of Traditional Orthodox Rabbis in the early 1990s. Yet the recent tussle over his status served to further cement the relationship between the RCA and the Rabbanut.»
