MK (Yahadut Hatorah) R’ Moshe Gafne launched a harsh verbal attack against Supreme Court Justice Elyakim Rubinstein. The judge is a member of the dati leumi community and the judge who wrote the opinion in this week’s ruling halting supplementary payments to avreichim.
In his address from the Knesset podium R’ Gafne referred to Justice Rubinstein as the “Rosha who stole the bread away from the children”. Gafne explained that the court’s ruling will impact the avreichim and their families that have nothing. “Not those who learn and the wives work and they have an apartment, but those who have nothing and will now have even less”. He called the court’s ruling “cruel”, one that will leave a growing number of children without the basics, not even a slice of bread.
He stressed that these avreichim, the poorest of the poor, will now be left with absolutely nothing and without the means to provide the basic sustenance to their children.
