SAFTEY FOR ALL THE JEWS , everything else is secondary

I live in Israel

I am going to as many parlor meetings (bayit chug) as possible – this week, Bayit Yehudi & Yesh Atid. I’m waiting to hear Naftoli Bennett personally but let me tell you….they are just as slick as US politicians, maybe more so. Having said that, I will probably vote Likud (holding my nose) or Bayit Yehudi, because right now my major concern is security. I am very interested in hearing more about Yeshai’s party & Shas is a corrupt disaster. Feiglin is a waste of a vote, he is over, as is Yesh Atid – they will get seats but… Read more »

The only real change to the political

landscape in Israel will come from MOshe Feiglin, who wants to end the disaster that is Oslo and be done with all the 2 state R”L talk. We also have no authority on the Har habayis and we need to rstore order there and restore the respect of the arabs to the jewish poeple that we had 30-40 years ago but we dont have now.

Don't back Bennett

His war on frum Jews is insane (along with Lapid he’s the one who spent most of his time in government trying to force limudei chol and arresting Chabad bochurim). His attack on an American ambassador is just about the worst move any Israeli representative on any side has ever made and he should be scorned by all sides for many reasons.

can they donate to crown heights too?

CSSV needs funds as well as other local mosdos

I doubt Yishai or Ben Ari will have any strength at all even if they do make it in by some miracle

The leverage Bennett had and is poised to have as one of the largest parties in Israel is way greater on all levels. You’d rather help him than waste time with the questionable others – no matter how friendly they might be.

I don’t tell donors what to do with their money, and its important to have connections with all political parties (probably their goal here). However its clear that Lubavitchers should be pushing for Eli Yishai and Michael Ben Ari to join forces and then support them and help them be the surprise of the election.

Bennett will only stay true to the right if he has a more righty party pushing him. A Yishai – Ben Ari ticket getting into the Knesset will have positive ramifications above their electoral strength.

if someone is not good for the Jews, it’s the Ben Ari nut who is wasting votes by disposable parties….

that's a donor?
January 8, 2015 3:42 pm

$10k – wow – I spend more on pesach………..

Oy!
January 8, 2015 3:35 pm

Bennett has caused huge problems for Chabad mosdos in Israel… folks, please support Ben-Ari, or if he’s not your cup of tea, Feglin or even Yishai. Bennett is not good for the Jews!

Thank You Rabbi Gutnick
January 8, 2015 3:33 pm

You do amazing work, we’re all very proud of you.

The limit is 11000 dollars
January 8, 2015 3:14 pm

A politician is only allowed to receive 11,000 dollars from an individual for campaigning sponsorship.

Is there a limit to receiving political funding in Israel? The amounts seem to be low!
