Bayit Yehudi Membership Drive Ends at about 40,000


The membership drive of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) ended Sunday evening at midnight, with more than 21,000 of the 40,000 registering for the party doing so via the Internet.

Chairman Danny Troper of the membership committee called the results of the four-month drive "a big success and significant awakening of religious Zionism. By comparison, only 7,000 were registered by the Labor Party via the Internet."
