Rabbis Seek Cooperation with Bennett to Save Torah Life


A committee of prominent rabbis met Sunday in Jerusalem to discuss protecting Torah study and a Torah way of life. The group advocated a policy of cooperation and sought to reach out to Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home - National Union) and Deputy Minister of Religious Services Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan (Jewish Home - National Union). Among the participants were Rabbi Yitzchak Jacobowitz who told Arutz Sheva news that he hoped to work together with members of the Jewish Home party for the benefit of all Jewish people and against new bills that many see as a threat to the yeshiva world.
