Rabbi Rachamim Nessimi Not Withdrawing from Primaries


Rabbi Rachamin Nessimi announced, Monday morning, that he was not withdrawing from Tuesday's primaries for a spot on the Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) Knesset ballot. He was responding to rumors that surfaced Monday morning.

Rabbi Nessimi said he believes that those who registered for the party understand, now that they have elected a new chairman, that there is a real need for diversity on the list and he would be happy to represent the broad spectrum of the religious Zionist and traditional public after he is elected.
