Gafni: Zionist Yeshivas Need to be 'Cut Down to Size'

The Knesset Oversight Committee on Tuesday will discuss a complaint filed by hareidi MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ), which claims that the government is discriminating against yeshivas (Torah academies) affiliated with the hareidi-religious community, for the benefit of Religious Zionist yeshivas. The discrimination ran the gamut of funding for these institutions, from budget allocations for administrators to stipends provided to full-time students, Gafni said.
