israeli-justice-minister-yaakov-neeman[Video below.] Israeli Justice Minister Yaakov Ne’eman yesterday said he believes that halacha should be the binding law in Israel, Army Radio reported.

“Step by step, we will bestow upon the citizens of Israel the laws of the Torah and we will turn halacha into the binding law of the nation,” said Ne’eman at a Jewish law convention at the Regency hotel in Yerushalayim, in the presence of many rabbonim and dayanim

“We must bring back the heritage of our fathers to the nation of Israel,” Ne’eman said. “The Torah has the complete solution to all of the questions we are dealing with,” he added.

Ne’eman’s statements were received with applauds from the convention participants, among them Rav Ovadia Yosef.

Other guests at the event included Likud MK Yisrael Katz, Interior Minister Eli Yishai and Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger.

During the convention, participants presented their halachic doctrine as it pertains to various subjects, including the release of Gilad Shalit, as well as acquisitions in the capital market.

    (by the way, it’s applause- not applauds).

  2. I Totally agree that Israel should adopt HALAKHA,as binding law of Israel. TORAH,will solve all proplems in Israel,not Turkeys.
