Hareidi Woman from Mea Shearim on Jewish Home List
The Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party has published its list of candidates for the city elections in Jerusalem.
In first place is Dov Kalmanovich, an accountant and long-time activist on behalf of victims of terrorism who also works as a director for the development of the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City. Kalmanovich was the first Israeli victim of the “First Intifada” wave of Arab attacks; he suffered serious injuries in a firebomb attack and remains badly scarred.
