Rabbi Uri Regev, director of religious freedom advocacy group Hiddush, slammed the Treasury's decision to raise the salaries of city and neighborhood rabbis.

Calling the raise "scandalous," Regev asserted in a statement that the increase is an example of cronyism among haredi (ultra-orthodox) parties that will come at the expense of tax paying citizens.
