Rabbi Eliezer Berland on Tuesday, 28 Shevat spoke with HaGaon HaRav Meir Mazuz Shlita to express his support for the new party. This would indicate that Eli Yishai’s party will now enjoy the backing of the Shuvu Banim community within the Breslov Chassidus.
Rabbi Berland promised Rav Mazuz that he will work to bring votes to the party and expressed hope that they will receive 26 seats as a result.
Adding to the growing list of rabbonim backing Yachad is Rabbi Shalom Arush Shlita of Kehillas Chut Shel Chessed. He too announced his support for Yishai and the new party.
