Hareidi MKs Slam Court Decision on Yeshiva Stipends

With its decision Sunday to halt stipends for yeshiva students, the High Court “has joined the chorus of haters of hareidi Jewry. We will not allow the court to turn us into the national whipping boy,” said Chairman Aryeh Deri of the Sephardic-hareidi Shas party. Similar sentiments were expressed by Members of Knesset Yaakov Litzman and Meir Porush of United Torah Jewry.
