A new poll conducted for the Hiddush religious freedom lobbying group revealed that 67 percent of the Jewish population believes that the activities of haredi political parties distance the public from Judaism.

The poll also showed that 76% of the Jewish population is not satisfied with the government’s handling of religious issues, and 64%, including 56% of religious people, thinks discrimination against women in the public domain should be a criminal offense.
