      Feiglin Attacks Jewish Home, Own Party Over Gay Marriage


      Deputy Knesset Chairman Moshe Feiglin (Likud) was the only nationalist MK to vote against a bill giving same-sex couples a tax break this week. The bill was voted for by Likud-Beytenu, and Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett.

      The remaining 11 Jewish Home MKs left the hall to abstain. Only the hareidi-religious parties, Feiglin, and MK Eitan Cabel (Labor) opposed the bill, which was proposed by MK Adi Kol (Yesh Atid).
