The House of Justice (Badatz) haredi community will cancel a protest rally it scheduled for Wednesday against Rabbi Ovadia Yosef's ruling in support of the IDF conversion law if Rabbi Yosef will issue a letter retracting the ruling, Israel Radio reported Sunday.

Shas chairman Eli Yishai met with representatives from the ultra-Orthodox community Saturday in an attempt to pressure the group into nixing the protest.
