JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Thousands of Israeli university students gathered in Jerusalem to protest a bill that would provide stipends to yeshiva students.
Up to 10,000 students from universities around the country arrived by chartered buses to the capital Monday evening for the protest march from the prime minister's official residence to Zion Square.
The protesters carried signs reading "We're not suckers" and "Haredim – go to work," and chanting slogans such as "Students are worth more" and "We're hungry for bread too."
