    Speaking during a parliamentary debate on the budget, the United Torah Judaism party leader and finance committee chairman said that he would “donate some clothes” to the 22-year-old performer.

    He was apparently referring to the skimpy outfits Kirel wears during her performances, which included a third-place finish for her song “Unicorn” at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool on May 13.

    “I really think that each person has a right to express his opinion, and this is his opinion, and I respect it. Everyone can think what he wants and this is his, it’s totally fine,” she told Channel 12 News.

    “Most opinions are ones of pride and love, and there are also these opinions, and it’s totally fine, he has a right to express his opinion,” she continued.

    משה Gafni never saw any pictures of נועה Kirel nor ever met her. His daughter mentioned it to her most esteemed Father.

    Goldknopf memorable moments. “it’s more difficult for the one who studies Torah than the one going to the front,” Try to send your husband to study Torah for a month. He’ll tell you, ‘I’m willing to go to the army for a year instead of learning Torah because it’s too hard.’ Torah is a bigger protection then the army”

    One of the biggest causes of tragedies are breaches in Tznuis. Gafni has made a tremendous Kiddish Hashem by raising awareness of the importance of Tznuis in a public forum
