Yesh Atid MK: We Need to Reclaim the Torah


MK Ruth Calderon (Yesh Atid) made her debut speech in the Knesset on Tuesday and said that "the Torah is not the property of one stream or another. It was given to everyone. No one took the Talmud and rabbinic literature from us. We gave them away because we had the more important task of building Zionism and now we need to reclaim what is ours. "

"I aspire to bring about a situation where Torah study will be something for all of Israel. That every young Israeli citizens will take part of the burden. In Torah study and in military service," she added.
