Deri: Progressive Judaism has no connection to Torah

Shas chairman and Interior Minister Arye Deri said on Tuesday morning that progressive Judaism had no connection with the Torah during a conference of Sephardi rabbis from around the world in the Knesset, also attended by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Speaking to over 100 Sephardi rabbis, Deri said that the only way to unite the Jewish people was around the Torah, and further stated that recognition of the progressive Jewish denominations in Israel would be detrimental to Jewish communities around the world.
