On Thursday morning, Knesset member Meir Porush walked in to the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee room and began chanting, loudly, verses of the Psalms. When a steward asked him to leave, he refused and then sat down on the floor. The meeting was adjourned.

Porush’s protest had nothing to do with the meeting’s agenda, which was about the proposed Regulation Law. He was protesting the committee chair, Rabbi Gilad Kariv, who a short while earlier had been at the Western Wall with a Torah scroll.
