Rabbi Eliyahu Questions Jewish Home 'Dictatorship'


Jewish Home slammed its MK Yoni Chetboun, threatening "serious consequences," after he announced Tuesday he would vote against coalition discipline and oppose the controversial (conscription) law. Chetboun argued the law is "splitting Israeli society" and said he would vote his conscience.

Responding to the confrontation, Rabbi Eliyahu wrote to Bennett, saying "I ask of you and members of your party: show leadership and allow various members the freedom to vote as they choose."
