Jerusalem - Not everyone who came to the sheva brachos celebration Israel’s health minister, Rabbi Yaakov Litzman, held for his grandson on Sunday afternoon came to share well wishes with the choson and kallah, as a group of Charedi demonstrators held a protest outside during the celebratory meal.

Among those in attendance at the sheva brachos were Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his wife, Sara, Education Minister Naftali Bennett, Defense Minster Avigdor Lieberman, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and Moshe Gafni, chairman of the Knesset’s finance committee, reported Arutz Sheva (http://bit.ly/2sHrvVZ).

A handful of Neturei Karta members took to the streets outside Rabbi Litzman’s Jerusalem apartment on Rechov Even Haezel, using the joyous occasion as an opportunity to protest the policies of the Israeli government.

Israeli website Kikar HaShabat (http://bit.ly/2sHhjg8) said that Netanyahu marveled at the fact that the 20 year old choson had already completed the entire Shas.

“If I had learned like the choson I wouldn’t have ended up as a cabinet minister,” observed Rabbi Litzman with a smile, prompting Mrs. Netanyahu to respond, “Nu, at least we are lucky enough to have you as a cabinet minister.”

It seems that's what they came to protest against.
A שבע ברכות turning political, rubbing shoulders with the devil of the highest level.

While its tactless to protest by someones simcha it is totally despicable to invite a true Apikoros into a yidishe simcha. Bibi abhors everything this sheva brochos stands for; meaning all yidishkeit symbolizes. To see an apikoros gumir at a yidishe simcha makes me vomit. What an upside down world!

While entitled to your opinion (which shows you only love Jews who are like yourself), you really should get better informed before sputtering such lashon harah.

You're only assuming what Bibi thinks about Yiddishkait based on your distorted hashkafa.

Assuming? Go get your facts. Bibi in his own words is a total non believer. He puts up a great front for innocent stupid people like you when he needs you but the essence of his being is an apikoros gumir.

Just so u know, bibi is far from an apikores & is proud to have religious children & grandchildren who had to get their hashkafa from somewhere (obviously from home). As for yidishkiet & Torah, the last time I checked were taught to accept one another as brothers & try to mikarev those who aren't 100% religious. I'd try learning a little Torah before speaking about others.

Whats bibi's own words where he said he is a non believer? Please send me those quotes. Otherwise you are just repeating fake news disseminated by satamar.
