Shas: Lapid's on a Crusade to End Yeshiva Learning

Deputy Prime Minister and Shas leader Eli Yishai laid out to Arutz 7 its non-negotiable terms for joining PM Binyamin Netanyahu's coalition.

He said that "ever requirement and reform has its limits." He added that he believes it is Yesh Atid's Yair Lapid's intention to permanently shut down the yeshiva world and that if he continues with this crusade he will be met with fierce resistance from Shas, which may even lead the party to join the opposition.
