Netanyahu facing crisis as haredim vow to quit over Western Wall pluralism

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces a potential crisis on Monday that could bring down his government.

Netanyahu’s ultra-Orthodox coalition partners informed him that they will quit the government if it goes ahead and enacts any measures that would be interpreted as official state recognition of Reform and Conservative Judaism.

The premier heard the threat first-hand during a meeting on Sunday with United Torah Judaism MKs Moshe Gafni and Yakov Litzman, Shas chairman Arye Deri, and Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett.
