Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked was preventing the dayanim appointment committee from convening until such time Rishon L’Tzion Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef Shlita appointed a dayan from the dati leumi community as av beis din. She ultimately gave in however, and the committee convened on Sunday morning 21 Adar and four dayanim were appointed.

The four are HaGaon HaRav Amram Elchadad, HaGaon HaRav Yekutiel Cohen, HaGaon HaRav Chaim Herzberg, and HaGaon HaRav David Levanon.

It is reported the chareidim pressured Shaked in the hope of having fourteen dayanim appointed but she only agreed to four.
