Israel treasury suspends yeshiva inspections over ultra-Orthodox protests

The Finance Ministry suspended all inspection of state-funded yeshivas five months ago at the instruction of its auditor general.

The inspection was halted following vehement protests by ultra-Orthodox ministers and Knesset members over an incident in which inspectors interrupted a lesson in a yeshiva in June, and has not been resumed since.

The Finance Ministry confirmed no inspection was being conducted on allocating funds to yeshivas and Torah institutions, but said inspection will be resumed “in a new and better format” in the coming year.

In a special Knesset plenum debate in July, MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) demanded stopping the yeshiva inspection completely until clear procedures were set to carry it out.
