Jeremy Gimpel, the Jewish Home's rising young star and a would-be Knesset Member, has pulled off a November surprise in the form of a four-minute video in which he speaks Hebrew, much to the surprise of those who figured he could only appeal to English-speakers.

In the video, Gimpel exhibits almost flawless and fluent Hebrew (with English subtitles) and lists the numerous and impressive achievements he has had in the six years since he began producing and hosting Tuesday Night Live on Arutz Sheva, alongside Ari Abramowitz.

Gimpel lays out the vision that has worked for him and Abramowitz, and served Israel at the same time – a confident attitude which sees religious Zionism as providing spiritual leadership for Israel and the entire world. He explains that religious Zionism is not just a sector within Israel's general population, but an essential part of the nation's psyche.

The Jewish Home's primaries will be held Tuesday, on the same day as the elections for the presidency of the United States.
