Lone Kibbutz Member in Next Knesset Likely to Be From Habayit Hayehudi

Kibbutzniks are often identified with the left-wing and secular, but Zvulun Kalfa, number seven on the right-wing, national religious list, was one of the settlers evacuated from Gush Katif and is now community director of Dvir, a secular kibbutz in the Negev.

Although kibbutzim are usually identified with the left, the only kibbutz member likely to make it into the next Knesset hails from the far-right Habayit Hayehudi. Zvulun Kalfa, number seven on the party list, was one of the settlers evacuated from Gush Katif in 2005. He later became community director of Dvir, a secular kibbutz in the Negev, founded by the left-wing Hashomer Hazair movement.
