Gafni: Lapid Succeeded in Unifying the Hareidim


MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) mocked Finance Minister Yair Lapid on Monday evening, following a meeting of hareidi rabbis in Bnei Brak in which steps against the new draft law were discussed.

“If Yair Lapid has managed to fulfill one commandment, it is in the fact that he was able to unify the hareidi society,” said Gafni, adding, "The day on which the decision was made to include criminal sanctions against hareidim is a black day for the people of Israel and the State of Israel.”
