United Torah Judaism (UTJ) MK Moshe Gafni was summoned to the Prime Minister's Office at the Knesset in order to determine the haredi position in the developing crisis on the IDF Conversions Bill proposed by Israel Beiteinu.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's party demanded that the conversions bill be passed before the budget vote takes place later this week.

Shas and UTJ threatened not to vote in favor of the budget if the conversions bill is advanced on Tuesday in the Knesset.
