Following the decision to stop the distribution of food stamps to downtrodden families, the political system and the media attack the decision of the High Court, saying that it is "cruelty".

The ultra-orthodox journalist Aryeh Ehrlich wrote: "The High Court is a classic example of a well-fed who is unable to feel the hunger. A sated and elitist group sits in Givat-Ram waving a quill and decreeing hunger for the weakest layers of society, from all sectors and cities, on the eve of the Tishrei holidays. The disgrace of hunger and nutritional insecurity of hundreds of thousands of children does not interest them, because they can and they are the masters of the land."

The political commentator Amit Segal reported that "Senior officials in Shas say that hundreds of thousands of poor families who earn an average of NIS 1,760 per person per month, and are anxiously waiting for food stamps, especially during the holidays, are now dependent on Judge Stein who earns an average of NIS 85,000 a month and deprives them of NIS 300 in food stamps . disconnected".

Member of the Knesset and candidate for mayor of Bnei Brak, Uriel Bosso, said: "The cruelty of the High Court's decision against the food stamps initiated by Rabbi Aryeh Deri, for the sake of Holocaust survivors, the elderly, and the needy, shows that the well-fed will never understand hunger. "Do for the sake of Israel the poor" (From the Selichot).
