Leader of Israel’s Mizrachi Warns Against Exaggerating Importance of Cabinet Crisis

The importance of the Cabinet crisis in Israel should not be exaggerated and it would be wrong to believe that it will hamper or retard the progress of the state, according to Rabbi Judah L. Maimon, Minister for Religions and a leading member of the Mizrachi, whose withdrawal from the Cabinet precipitated the fall of the government.

Rabbi Maimon, who arrived in England Sunday for a short visit, spoke at the fifth anniversary dinner of the Jewish Review, Mizrachi publication here. Other speakers included Elishu Elath, Israel Minister to London, Rabbi Kopul Rosen, president of the British Mizrachi, and Chaim Lewis, editor of the Review.
