This as Religious Affairs Minister, and Yamina-party MK, Matan Kahana walking back his support for the planned compromise. Kahana said the framework of the 2016 agreement needs to be studied and reworked. Arguing that “the vast majority of Jews in Israel are orthodox, and therefore, it’s not right to give control over parts of the Western Wall to streams of Judaism that don’t represent the majority in Israel.” Kahana’s comments drew sharp criticisms, however, not only because the deal was passed in 2016, just to be frozen by the Netanyahu government – but also because in fact, most Jews in Israel identify as secular or traditional. and the vast majority polled support the compromise.
