MK Maklev Blasts Reform in Religious Services


MK Rabbi Uri Maklev (United Torah Judaism) attacked on Sunday the reform program in the Ministry of Religious Affairs that was introduced by Minister Naftali Bennett and Deputy Minister Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan.

"The reform in the religious services undermines the principles of religion and undermines the continuity of Judaism in Israel. This is not a reform in religious services, this is a reform in halakha (Jewish law),” said Maklev.

"This is the ecstasy of the Bayit Yehudi after they were able to push aside the hareidi public and it harms along the way every regulation and existing traditional frameworks,” he charged.
