Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday praised Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef's decision that IDF military conversions were kosher.

"This is a very important message to the soldiers, to the status of the IDF and to the cohesion of the nation," Barak said.

Israel Beiteinu has said that they will continue to pursue the military conversion bill despite Yosef's decision.
