United Torah Judaism MK Menachem Eliezer Mozes said on Monday that the party is demanding that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu advance a controversial law on mikva usage despite the strong opposition of the attorney general to the bill.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post, Mozes said that Netanyahu was obliged to do so because of commitments he made in the coalition agreement between UTJ and Likud, and said that pressure from non-Orthodox Jewish denominations in the Diaspora over such issues was undemocratic.

“The High Court decision is is a dramatic change, which would allow these clowns and Reform rabbis to use mikvas. We won’t allow it.”
