Lapid Lauds Supreme Court Ruling Against Yeshivas

Finance Minister Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) responded Wednesday morning to the Supreme Court decision Tuesday ruling that the government must not fund yeshivas for 18-20 year-old students who have received enlistment orders in the past and not enlisted.

The ruling was issued despite a decision by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to postpone the enlistment of full-time yeshiva students until the imminent passage of legislation on the tense issue of hareidi enlistment, which hareidi MKs charge is being fueled by hatred.
