On today's "Reality Bytes Radio, with Josh Hasten" Habayit Hayehudi leadership candidate Naftali Bennett says that his goal in leading the party is to help instill a strong sense of Jewish identity in all Israelis regardless of religious observance. Bennett feels that the majority of Israelis are seeking to grasp on to Torah values and hopes that his party can help facilitate a change in which the the next generation of Israelis are given the tools to head in the right direction. He also is stressing the importance of a strong Jewish-based educational system throughout the country.

In regard to the Iranian threat, which Bennett has addressed on major news channels around the world, he says that Israel can't outsource it's security needs, and must rely on itself to do what is necessary to protect and defend its citizens. 

Also on the show Migron resident Aviela Dietch attempts to clarify the confusing back and forth news reports in regard to the fate of her community.  While several deadlines have passed and Migron remains intact, the residents there fear that the government on orders from the judiciary can show up at any time and evacuate the community.  Dietch says that Migron residents have been buying or "re-buying" swaths of land in order that the authorities will back off. Despite it all Dietch says that two new families have in fact moved in to Migron in recent days.
