      Petition Against Broadcast of Rabbi Yoseph's Lessons


      The Hidush "freedom of religion and equality" organization asked Chairman Eliyakim Rubinstein of the Central Elections Committee, Thursday, to issue an injunction against Rabbi Ovadia Yoseph, the Shas Knesset list, Radio Kol Berama and the Second Television and Radio Authority to prevent broadcasts of Rabbi Yoseph's lessons on Kol Berama or any other media outlet until after the Knesset election.

      Hidush called the lessons campaign advertising. It proposed recording the lessons and broadcasting them after all campaign content has been removed.
