Former MK May Run for Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem


Former MK Rabbi Haim Amsellem said on Wednesday he is considering running for the position of Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem.

In a post on his Facebook page, Rabbi Amsellem wrote that in light of numerous requests from several people in recent days, he considering applying for the post. Rabbi Amsellem was an MK for Shas but fell out of favor with the party and broke off from it, forming the Am Shalem party which failed to pass the electoral threshold.
