      Rapprochement between Shas and Habayit Hayehudi


      Co-Chairman Eli Yishai of the Shas party told Chairman Naftali Bennett of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party), Thursday evening, that his faction would act to tighten relations between the two parties, in the wake of friction that surfaced during the recent Knesset election campaign and has continued since then. During a telephone call initiated by Bennett, Yishai stressed the need for cooperation between the parties.
