Israel Gets 29 Judges

Government By TPS   •   8 January, 2019

President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday spoke at a swearing-in ceremony for judges at Beit HaNasi.

29 judges and senior registrars swore an oath before the president: eight District Court judges, one judge of the Regional Labor Court, 15 Magistrates’ Court judges and five senior registrars.

“As opposed to the voter, judges must not adopt a personality that will prejudice his or her positions. So that justice is blind, the judge must disconnect from public discourse about left, right and center, conservative and progressive,” Rivlin told them.
