Prime Minister Naftali Bennett cheers a Knesset committee’s approval of a kosher reform bill ahead of its final plenum votes.

The bill is backed by Religious Affairs Minister Matan Kahane, a member of Bennett’s Yamina party, who the premier hails for having “withstood the pressures” against the proposal.

“The result: An important and necessary move for restaurateurs, importers, the economy and all Israeli citizens,” Bennett says in a statement.
