Former prime minister Naftali Bennett wins a defamation lawsuit against a rabbi who claimed that he and his mother were not Jewish.

Rabbi Ronen Shaulov issues a statement apologizing for the comments and how widely they spread, and admitting that he now knows them to be false.

The damages to be paid by Shaulov are slated to be decided by the court at a future date. Bennett has previously stated that he intends to donate any such damages to charity.

Attorneys for Bennett said in a statement that the court ruling is “a clear message of its unwillingness to tolerate the spread of lies.”
