For Lieberman and Religious Parties, a Rapprochement

Yisrael Beiteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman met with leaders of the religious parties to settle differences.

Following their hourlong meeting Monday, the party leaders said that “agreements can be reached,” even on sensitive subjects, Ynet reported. They reportedly discussed civil marriage, conversion, religion and state, and changes to the system of government.

Yisrael Beiteinu and the religious parties will likely sit together in a coalition government led by Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud Party.
