Dina Silber to Succeed Mike Blass


A search committee headed by Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein named Dina Silber of the State Attorney's Office, Thursday evening, to succeed Mike Blass as Deputy Attorney General. Silber is a senior member of the staff dealing in petitions to the Supreme Court.

Blass raised the ire of residents of Judea and Samaria recently for telling the Supreme Court that it was the government's position that Jewish residents of the Binyamin-region hilltop community of Migron be evicted, even though the Ministerial Committee on Settlement Activity supported their petition to stay.
