Monday, 20.7.2020, the Immigration, Absorption, and Diaspora Affairs Committee met for a meeting to go over the work of the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs.
At the meeting, Minister of Diaspora Affairs Omer Yankelevitch reviews various projects that the Ministry is running to support World Jewry during Corona.
During the discussion, MK Tehila Friedman (Blue and White) said:
“I think that the next stage is to consult with World Jewry about decisions that me make and that affect them“.
MK Evgeny Sova (Yisrael Beiteinu) said:
“No one has talked about the Kotel Agreement. This is a topic that is crucial to them and educationally, when you teach American Jews and give them Jewish values then every kid and every youth says that he wants to come to the Kotel as a Reform Jew but they aren’t letting me celebrate a Bar Mitzvah“.
