Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff, David Sharan, left his position without finding a solution to the controversy over egalitarian prayer at the Western Wall.
Netanyahu had asked Sharan to deal with the matter, but he did not complete his task. He held the post from the end of May until the beginning of August. Sharan was not available for comment Wednesday.
The director of the Reform Movement in Israel, Rabbi Gilad Kariv, said that Sharan had not made any progress since he was tasked with coming up with bridging proposals after implementation of the Western Wall agreement stalled earlier this year.
