Bennett Apologizes For Party’s Anti Charedi Ad


Habayit Yehudi leader and Education Minister Naftali Bennett apologized after his party’s Yerushalayim branch ran an anti-charedi campaign.

Yediot Aharonot had reported on Monday that Habayit Yehudi had been distributing posters featuring leading mayoral candidates Moshe Lion, MK Zeev Elkin and Ofer Berkowitz dressed like charedim under the caption “only Habayit Yehudi will stop Yerushalayim’s charedi influence”.

“Habayit Yehudi strongly condemns the campaign published this morning by the party’s branch in the municipal elections in Yerushalayim,” tweeted Bennett. “The campaign was not carried out by the party’s national leadership, and does not represent its position regarding the charedi public.”

“This is not our way,” added Bennett. “We believe in the connection and dialogue between the different parts of Israeli society, and not in increasing polarization.”

    While Bennett made fun of Chareidim, he called Conservative and Reform “our brothers.”
