Dissent in Habayit Hayehudi Over Candidate for Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi

Bennett opposes agreement reached by religious Zionist forum backing Rabbi Yaakov Ariel.

Members of Habayit Hayehudi are split over who to support in the race for Chief Rabbinate, with party leader Naftali Bennett strongly in favor of Rabbi David Stav, a founder of the religious Zionist organization, Tzohar.
