Rabbi: Jewish Religious Parties Must Unite


All of the religious Jewish Knesset factions should unite, Rabbi Nir Ben-Artzi has declared. “The nation will not choose those who publicly humiliate others. All the parties embarrass one another… Only those who uphold the Torah and assist the needy will succeed,” he said.

“What are they fighting over?” he continued. “Over helping one’s fellow man? Over building the Temple? Over helping the weak?”

“They’re fighting over nonsense,” he answered himself. “There are parties that help the Torah world... but why not unify, why the division?”
