      Shas MK Slams ‘Outrageous Persecution’ of Yeshivas


      MK Nissim Zev of the hareidi-religious Shas party has issued a scathing condemnation of the Supreme Court ruling barring the government from transferring funds to yeshivas.

      The ruling means the Education Ministry can no longer fund yeshiva students ages 18-20 if they have not enlisted in the army, despite a decision made by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon to postpone the students’ draft.
