Likud Looking To Pull Votes From Chareidi Tzibur Too

With Election Day for the 21st Knesset approaching, the parties competing are working hard to gain additional votes, and Likud is not an exception. To the dismay of Yahadut Hatorah officials, it appears there are chareidim who will be casting a ballot for Likud and not the chareidi party.

In fact, according to a Kikar Shabbos News report, Likud campaign officials are weighing the possibility of a major campaign rally in Tamir Hall in Yerushalayim towards attracting additional chareidi voters. An event in Tamir is clearly directed at the chareidi voter, since the venue is used for chareidi affairs exclusively.

At present, the event is tentatively set for April 7, 2019, two days before Election Day, Tuesday, April 9, 2019. Yahadut Hatorah MKs are aware of the planned event, and MK Uri Maklev, who is reportedly outraged, is working hard to torpedo it, to prevent it from taking place.

Kikar Shabbos adds when it contacted senior officials in Likud, they were told that Tamir was chosen because they were looking for an inexpensive venue and not necessarily because they are trying to steal chareidi votes.

At the end, the event will most likely not take place although this is not yet a certainty.

It is estimated that today, the number of chareidim who will not vote for a chareidi party has increased, standing at 20%.

  1. “The parties are working hard to gain additional votes”… all parties that is except of course the Haredi parties who seem to think they get our votes by Divine right. Sorry folks, if you want religious Jews to vote for you then you have to also “work hard” to earn our votes. Why would I vote for a party that places yeshiva budgets above national security ??
