Mainstream haredi MKs decline debate at Hebrew U

A political debate for haredi MKs that was organized by a group of haredi students at Hebrew University is facing severe difficulties getting any haredi MKs to attend.

Moshe Kelemen, 28, a haredi student studying communications and political science, has in conjunction with other haredi students at the university, been organizing the debate for some time.

Haredi MKs from United Torah Judaism, Shas and Yahad were invited, as well as MK Rabbi Dov Lipman from Yesh Atid and a representative of the haredi women’s campaign “No Representation, No Vote,” in which haredi women are threatening not to vote for UTJ or Shas since they have no female Knesset candidate.
