On today's "Reality Bytes Radio, with Josh Hasten" Jewish Home Party (Bayit Yehudi) candidate Jeremy Gimpel says that he is excited about his party's soaring figures in the polls. Gimpel believes that while there are numerous well-intentioned Likud-Beiteinu personalities running for office, when it comes to building in the Land of Israel, their hands are tied because of those at the top of the party list. Gimpel also stresses the importance of having a Zionist Rabbi serving as the Israel's Chief Rabbi.
