Deri: Discrimination in Jerusalem is No More


Shas chairman MK Aryeh Deri said on Sunday that the discrimination against girls of Sephardic origin in hareidi schools in Jerusalem had been eradicated.

"With the opening of the school year I am proud to announce to the public that Jerusalem is making history! There are no Sephardic girls at home!" wrote Deri on his Facebook page, adding, “This is a repair of an historical injustice that begins in Jerusalem and will continue throughout the country.”
