UTJ & Shas Fight for Education Budget in Knesset

United Torah Judaism and Shas got tough in their fight to maintain the budget for educational institutions of Torah learning. On Wednesday they sent a letter to the Jewish Home party urging them to argue for the budget.

Unlike in previous administrations, the UTJ and Shas are not in the government coalition while Jewish Home - National Union joint ticket shot up from one of the smallest parties to the 4th largest in the most recent elections. UTJ and Shas asserted that state funding for traditional Jewish education was important enough that they would not rush to the aide of the Jewish Home party in the future.
