Hershkowitz, Orbach: Don't Change Membership Report

Chairman Daniel Hershkowitz of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) and Member of Knesset Uri Orbach called, Sunday, on members of the party's Standing Committee and Central Committee to accept the recommendations of a special committee on registering members without changes.

Sources close to the two Knesset members are concerned that Member of Knesset Zevulun Orlev will try to change parts of the recommendations with which he is not satisfied. Hershkowitz and Orbach said, "Every change and correction is an opening for new and old disagreements and a step back from what was agreed, and could cause all of the work of the [membership] committee to collapse."
