Rabbi Piron: Not the Only Yesh Atid Religious Candidate


Rabbi Shai Piron, who occupies the second slot on the Yesh Atid party's Knesset list, said, Thursday evening, that he conditioned his joining the party, among other things, on his not being the only religious person on the ballot. Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio, he said he demanded that Doctor Aliza Lavie be placed in one of the ten top places. Dr. Lavie is a senior lecturer in the School of Communication at Bar-Ilan University.

Rabbi Piron said he supports renewing talks with the Palestinian Authority but that does not mean he supports uprooting Jewish communities.
