      United Torah Judaism List Taking Shape


      The Degel Hatorah faction of United Torah Judaism is meeting, Monday, to decide its candidates for the January Knesset elections, to be mixed with those of the Agudat Yisrael faction, which was decided last night. The Agudat Yisrael candidates stand to be Deputy Health Minister Ya'akov Litzman, former Member of Knesset Meir Porush and incumbents Menachem Eliezer Moses and Yisrael Eichler.

      The top two spots in the Degel Hatorah list are expected to go to Knesset Finance Committee Chairman Moshe Gafni and Deputy Knesset Speaker Uri Maklev. The third spot is expected to be decided Monday evening.
