Budget for religious services and yeshivas doubled by current government in 2015

The Hiddush religious pluralism lobbying group has criticized what it says is the dramatic increase in the government budgets for religious services and yeshiva funding made following the formation of the current government in May 2015.

The organization also censured legislation and government measures relating to religion and state issues in the Knesset’s winter session, which ended last week, such as haredi enlistment to the IDF, Shabbat in the public realm, mikvas, and statements of MKs against the non-Orthodox movements.
