2 Petitions Against Shas TV Ad

MK Nino Absedze, Chairman of the Labor party Immigrant’s HQ and the Ungar family of Ashdod have filed a complaint with the Central Elections Committee demanding the disqualification of a “racist Shas ad demeaning to Russian immigrants”.

Last night’s ad depicted a wedding ceremony between an Israeli and a Russian immigrant. The wedding was put on hold, pending an instant conversion certificate faxed to the bride. Voters were encouraged to choose Shas as their Knesset representative to supervise proper conversions.
