The Knesset's Finance Committee Chairman, MK Nissan Slomiansky (Jewish Home), has set up a national forum of rabbis known for their social and religious leadership to help connect Israel's wide traditional population with the national-religious public.
Members of the forum include such prestigious rabbis as Rabbi Shimon Cohen of Beersheva, Rabbi Ezra Sheinberg of Tzfat, Rabbi Uri Sharki from Jerusalem, Rabbi David Turgeman from Dimona, Rabbi Shimon Biton from Beit Shean, Rabbi Yonatan Adoar from Petah Tikva , and Rabbi Rahamim Nassimi from Beit Shemesh.
The forum also received the blessing of Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, the Chief Rabbi of Tzfat and a member of the Israel's Chief Rabbinate Council.
According to several recent surveys, there are many voters who remain undecided on which party to give their voice to. A significant portion of those undecided voters belong to the traditional public.
The forum of rabbis will gather in Jerusalem for a conference Sunday to garner the interest of traditional voters. They plan to especially turn their attention to voters who believes Torah, the Jewish people, and the land of Israel are important to them.
The conference was organized by several activists and organizations working in conjunction with Jewish Home MKs, as led by Slomiansky.
"It is important for the rabbis to say aloud to all you - a large group of people who represent a wide public - that Jewish Home is your home," Slomiansky stressed at the event.
