Orlev Welcomes Bennett Decision


Member of Knesset Zevulun Orlev welcomed, Monday morning, the decision of Naftali Bennett to run against him for chairmanship of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party). Referring to Bennett's earlier plans to form a new party, Orlev said, "I am pleased that Naftali Bennett decided to shelve the idea of a further split of religious Zionism..."

Orlev continued, "I call for more young people like Bennett to join us and to compete in the primaries so that the religious public can vote for the best and present a balanced and varied list of experienced leaders with new and young ones and receive the trust of all parts of religious Zionism."
