Chief Rabbi David Lau described reports of a split with Diaspora Jewry over the cancelled Western Wall agreement and controversial conversion legislation as “fake news” at an economics and business conference of the Hamodia haredi newspaper. Lau claimed that 80 percent of Diaspora Jews do not visit Israel, asserted that progressive Jews have full access to pray at the main Western Wall plaza, and said that accusations regarding a lack of access were “lies and falsehood.”

“They don’t come to pray at the Western Wall, they don’t come at all,” alleged the chief rabbi.
