Prime Minister's Office Communications Director Nir Hefetz rejected criticism of the Yeshiva Stipends reforms slated to be discussed later Sunday morning in the cabinet, in an interview to Army Radio.

"I cannot understand the opposition [to the reforms]," Hefetz told Army Radio. Under the plan, benefits would be slashed and limited to five years. However, it was announced Sunday that the reforms would only apply to 10 percent of yeshiva students, according to Army Radio.
