Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef on Saturday night condemned the Bayit Yehudi party, saying whoever votes for them "denies the Torah," Army Radio reported.

Speaking at his weekly Saturday night Torah session, Yosef said the party intends to "uproot the Torah, to allow civil marriages, and to have public transportation on Shabbat," Army Radio quoted him as saying.

The Rabbi added that it is forbidden to vote for them.
