Yesh Atid MK Yoel Razbozov urged Education Minister Shai Piron Sunday to stop funding for Torat HaChaim yeshiva following a message published by the yeshiva rejoicing the passing of former prime minister Ariel Sharon.

"This is not the education we want to have in this country," Razbozov wrote in a letter to Piron.

"A yeshiva that rejoices at the death of a man and does not educate to human dignity does not deserve the support for the Ministry of Education, especially when this man is a former prime minister, he added.
