Rabbi Stav Thanks Jewish Home for Support


Rabbi David Stav thanked Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party), Sunday, for its endorsement of his candidacy to be Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi of Israel.

Responding to Party Chairman Naftali Bennett's telephone call to inform him of the endorsement, Rabbi Stav promised "that he would continue to work with all Israelis - hareidim, religious Zionists and secularists - to connect Israeli society to the Jewishness of the state and to make a real change in the activity of the Chief Rabbinate for the citizens of Israel," according to a statement by the Tzohar rabbinical organization which Stav heads.
