A large group of central rabbis and leaders within the religious Zionist movement have signed an advertisement calling on Jewish Home voters to select former NRP MK Nisan Slomiansky in the party's primaries Tuesday.

Rabbi Chaim Druckman, Chairman of Bnei Akiva Yeshivas, is quoted as saying: "I am full of admiration for Nisan. He is mindful of the needs of all of the Torah institutes of religious Zionism and he works for them with dedication."

The list of rabbis who appear as signatories includes Rabbi Tzefania Drori, Rabbi of Kiryat Shemona and Dean of the Hesder Yeshiva in that town; Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstern, Dean of Har Etzion Yeshiva; Rabbi Nachum Rabinovich, Dean of Maaleh Edumim  Hesder Yeshiva; Rabbi Eitan Eizenman, Chairman of the Noam-Tzvia Network;  Rabbi David Fendel, Dean of Sderot Yeshiva, and many more.

The signatories praised Slomiansky's work over the years and expressed hope that he would return to the Knesset.
