      Barkat Hopes for Religious-Zionist Boost for Jerusalem

      Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat spoke Tuesday about the process of selecting rabbis for the city. Appeals over the process were rejected, he said.

      Barkat added, “There is great importance to having a rabbi from the religious-Zionist sector in the city, and I hope that it will bring the city of Jerusalem forward.”
