Yehimovic reaches out to haredim

Media celebrity turned politician Shelly Yehimovic said Wednesday she would like to work together with haredim to fight pornography and the extreme consumerism that causes Shabbat desecration. "I am totally disgusted by secular Israelis' anti-Semitism towards haredim," Yehimovic said in an interview on the haredi Radio Kol Chai. Yehimovic went on to say she had "a lot in common with haredim" such as "the social ramifications of Shabbat desecration, my opposition to pornography and to consumer culture that caters to malls open on Shabbat." Yehimovic also said she did not oppose exempting women from IDF service.
