Livni Slams Religious Hegemony Over Proposed Jewish Identity Agency

Proposed by Habayit Hayehudi, the agency will be part of Religious Services Ministry. Cabinet expected to approve it on Sunday.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni (Hatnuah) blasted the planned establishment of a so-called Jewish Identity Administration on Thursday, calling it “a political move whose sole purpose is to be a tool for worrisome religious indoctrination.”
