October 25, 2010 18:43

The Labor Party on Monday vowed to lead the fight against a new bill which proposes to reinstate stipends for students studying Torah full time.

"The party is united in the opinion that both the state and the yeshiva students themselves would be better off if they joined the work force. The proposed solution that would offer [university] students equal conditions is merely a trick, which we will not accept."
