The inclusion of footage of a synagogue in a promo for the 13th season of the satirical television program “Wonderful Country” (“Eretz Nehederet”) has infuriated both the Chief Rabbinate and the religious services minister, who say it demonstrates contempt for sacred objects.

The footage showed people standing around an open Torah scroll, with an open ark containing other Torah scrolls visible behind them.

… Journalists from the ultra-Orthodox community, to which Religious Services Minister David Azoulay belongs, were equally furious.
