      Litzman Reminds Lapid of Past anti-Hareidi Failures

      Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman addressed the Knesset Wednesday, and took the opportunity to remind Yair Lapid, “Your father established a party founded on rejection of Hareidim, and despite initial success, plummeted from 15 Knesset seats to none within four years. Avoid basing a party on negative sentiment.”

      Litzman also brought the attention of the Knesset to the fact that Hareidi influence and effort on behalf of the nation and state benefits Israeli politics and society at large.
