Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett paid a visit to two of the most prestigious haredi yeshivas in the world on Monday, in an attempt to allay the fears of the ultra-Orthodox community that he is working against them, as well as to send a message that national service and Torah study can be combined.

Bennett visited the Mir Yeshiva in Jerusalem’s Mea She’arim neighborhood and met with the leading rabbis of the institution and several students, in order to better acquaint himself with the haredi community, the Bayit Yehudi leader said.Bennett also sat with the dean of the Mir Yeshiva Rabbi Eliezer Yehudah Finkel to learn about the daily schedule of the yeshiva students and the yeshiva more broadly, which counts more than 7,000 students learning in its study halls.

“The haredim are our brothers, not an enemy, not an opponent and Torah study is a national interest of the State of Israel and the entire Jewish people,” Bennett told the press outside the Yeshiva.
