MK Moshe Gafni roundly blasted Bennett over the appointment

“Bennett is a bum who tries the whole time to prove that he’s not religious and is not interested in the tradition that exists in this regard,” the Hebrew Yated Neeman newspaper quoted Gafni as saying. “He hasn’t been successful at but he’s trying hard to prove he’s secular and doesn’t care about the tradition that’s been here for years. He’s not succeeding in anything he’s doing. He is looking for all kinds of headlines to get all kinds of applause like from the Chiddush organization, which proves who exactly his friends are.”
