      New Nationalist Party Named 'The Jewish Home'

      The new united nationalist party has been given the name Habayit HaYehudi, or 'The Jewish Home'. The name was selected by the public out of five options that were put up for a vote on a website created especially for that task.

      The other options were Shorashim (Roots), Atzmaut (Independence), Shalem and Amichai.

      The party is the result of a union between the National Religious Party and the National Union.
