Jewish Home Young Leadership Celebrates 3 Years


The Young Leadership Division of the Jewish Home Party, known is Hebrew as Bayit Yehudi celebrated its third anniversary this week. One young volunteer told Arutz Sheva news, "our job is to connect the public to the Members of Knesset and to help correct wrongs done to ordinary citizens." The young adults, age 18-35, utilize Facebook, email and other internet technologies to deal with the hundreds of inquiries from citizens seeking to overcome bureaucratic obstacles and other issues. The Young Leadership team tries to respond, and when relevant, refer the mater to a Member of Knesset to address the problem. Jewish Home is currently the 4th largest party in the Knesset with 13 MKs out of a total of 120 MKs.
