The somewhat unconventional Shas MK Yigal Guetta has stepped down as a member of Knesset after coming under fire from prominent rabbis for attending the wedding of his gay nephew some two years ago.

Guetta was interviewed on Army Radio last week during which he spoke about how two years ago his sister from Kibbutz Ginosar called him to tell him that her son was getting married. …

This admission led to denunciations from several quarters including the dean of the prestigious Porat Yosef Yeshiva Rabbi Moshe Tzadka.

On Wednesday morning, Guetta submitted his resignation to Shas chairman Aryeh Deri who accepted it.
