Lavi and Gafni providing the best show in town (video)

The Knesset has been dubbed (by me) as "the best show in town".. and MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ) is one of the MKs that make it so...

As quoted yesterday, MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) is promoting a bill that would require 50% representation of women on religious councils. Gafni opposes the bill and says those behind it are hypocrites, and even said that more Haredi MKs voted for a female president than female MKs who voted for a female, yet they demand spots in the religious councils... Deputy Minister Eli Ben Dahan responded to the bill saying the numbers are inaccurate, and the bill is unnecessary as the religious councils are working towards 20% representation which is very reasonable and in no other government body or anywhere else is there a demand for 50% representation.

here is the entertaining video...

  1. Funny. My wife is on one of the religious councils. Religious councils get to allocate money for various functions, and there's no reason women shouldn't be involved in those decisions, but I don't think it makes sense to mandate a 50% quota. On the council that my wife serves on, the bigger deal is that, unknown to the public, the wife of one of the other members isn't Jewish. Just the kind of person you want to be involved with supervision of the eruv.
