Rivlin to haredi school pupils: Study in order to contribute to society

After having been abruptly disinvited by one haredi school in Jerusalem, President Reuven Rivlin opened the school year at another haredi school in the capital’s Har Nof neighborhood with a message to the pupils that study was crucial to enabling citizens to contribute to the society they live in.

The president had been scheduled to visit the Talmud Torah Kehilat Yaakov in the Ramot neighborhood, but the school disinvited him last week because of his strong support of the gay and lesbian community in the remarks he made following the stabbing at the Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem last month.
