      Bayit Yehudi MK Hopes Chief Rabbi Will Represent All


      Deputy Education Minister MK Avi Wortzman (Bayit Yehudi - National Union) responded to the election of the two new Chief Rabbis of Israel. "I hope that the rabbis can connect the rabbinical institutions into society on a greater level," he stated. "The Chief Rabbinate needs to be an Israeli Zionist Jewish institution utilized to address each and every Jew," he said. The candidates favored by the Bayit Yehidi party did not win.
