The Knesset's Finance Committee on Tuesday approved the allocation of NIS 30 million to ultra-Orthodox parties, for the purpose of financing yehsivot. During the meeting, an intense verbal exchange between Shas MKs and their Shinui counterparts forced Committee Chairman Yaakov Litzman to continuously pound the table. In fact, his repeated poundings caused his gavel to brake. It is estimated that the funds are part of the Coalition's efforts to win the support of the ultra-Orthodox parties in the upcoming 2006 state budget vote.
