Yet another surprise was announced in Israel today, Tuesday 13 Kislev 5773 when Rav Amnon Yitzchak told participants in a shiur “it’s official”, explaining he is running for Knesset. The rav explained that over the years, he has been asked on numerous occasions why he does not enter Knesset and he has decided to launch a party and do just that, confident he will be in the double digits following the election.
“I will return the government to the people” he explains, adding that to implement change, one must be part of the game and in this case, in Knesset. He promises to continue as he has for the past 35 years, doing his utmost for Am Yisrael, to give without asking anything in return, to distance people from an incorrect path, to act as a true shaliach of the people.
The rav adds that he has proven himself for over three decades and as such, he is confident the tzibur knows who he really is and will chose him to represent their interests in Knesset.
