Deri: non-Orthodox Jewish streams not Judaism

Shas chairman and Interior Minister Aryeh Deri strongly denounced non-Orthodox Judaism during a question and answer session in the Knesset on Monday, and described Reform religious practice as “not the Jewish religion.”

Deri was responding to a question by Yesh Atid MK Elazar Stern who asked the minister why the haredi political parties were alienating non-Orthodox Jews from the State of Israel, in particular over their blocking of the Western Wall agreement.
