The coalition appeared to reach a compromise Monday by which a Knesset vote on the Jewish state bill scheduled for Wednesday will be delayed by a week.

The vote has caused a crisis within Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition, with Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni vowing not to vote in favor of the bill despite the cabinet's approval of the measure on Sunday.
