Anderson, a Canadian-American actress and advocate for animal rights, is expected to arrive in Israel to take part in a discussion intended to soften the religious parties' objection to the fur bill presented by Knesset Member Ronit Tirosh (Kadima). The bill calls for a ban on fur trade in Israel.
Anderson was approached by representatives of the International Anti-Fur Coalition, led by Jane Halevi. The meeting has yet to be set due to the actress's busy schedule.
"We don't know her, but if she wants to meet I hope she know that we observe Negiah (Halacha concept that forbids or restricts physical contact with a member of the opposite sex)," a Shas MK said with a smile.
MK Ronit Tirosh noted, "I'm not sure that this visit will convince the religious parties, but any supporter of the bill is welcome as far as I'm concerned."
