The "pride month" events intended to promote LGBT agendas will be held in cities and regional councils across Israel, and provided with municipal funding.

Howver, in the Asher Regional Council, advertisements have showed that the Ministry for the Development of the Negev and Galilee is also providing funds for the events, together with the Reform Movement.

The Ministry for the Development of the Negev and Galilee is headed by Shas minister Aryeh Deri, who also serves as Interior Minister.

In Shas' last election campaigns, its motto was "a Jewish state" and the movement promised its voters that it would preserve Jewish values when it came to issues of religion and state.

"We've had a Jewish state for 72 years so far - let's protect it," the campaign emphasized. "Only Shas will preserve the State's Jewish character."
