R. Shapira Welcomes Bayit Yehudi Objection to Budget

The head of the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva, Rabbi Yaakov Shapira, welcomed on Friday the announcement by Bayit Yehudi MKs Zevulun Kalfa, Motti Yogev, Yoni Chetboun and Orit Struk, who announced that they would oppose the budget unless the cuts in the budgets of yeshivas are cancelled.

Rabbi Shapira told Kalfa that everyone must concern themselves with the Zionist and hareidi-religious yeshivot and firmly stand alongside the Torah world.
