    Israel’s chief rabbis, Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef and Rabbi David Lau, told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday that under no conditions may the Reform movement be allowed to gain ground, especially at the Western Wall.

    Also attending the meeting were Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, and the heads of the haredi parties, Shas and United Torah Judaism (UTJ).

    The Shas and UTJ leadership made clear that both parties would oppose any compromise recognizing the Reform stream or otherwise providing them with official backing.

    They repeated the decisions made by the councils of sages that guide both parties, and said that haredi Jewry would not allow the Reform or Conservative movements “to gnaw at the nations’ holy places in any way.”

    The parties issued a statement after the meeting, according to which Netanyahu summed up the consultation by saying that discussions on the matter would continue in an attempt to reach an agreed solution. This, Netanyahu said, was necessary “in order to deal with the legal challenge we face, because of various motions that are currently awaiting decision at the High Court.”

    Netanyahu also said that he would “update the rabbis regarding the steps being taken to give a legal solution to the issue,” according to the haredi parties’ statement.

    1. Just as Reform/Conservative are losing ground, closing Temples, consolidating due to assimilation and apathy, they are suing in the HolyLand!
      They never had any power in Europe or Israel, and have been slowly losing ground in the USA over the last 25 years. (without Catering Halls they wouldn’t exist!!!!!!)
      So sad that the Government of Israel would even capitulate an inch! These ‘movements’ are going the way of the Dodo bird, the Enlightenment, the Haskala and the Kairites…

      Moshiach is coming!!!!
