Habayit Hayehudi will end up with more than 30,000 members after its registration drive that ends on Sunday night, the party’s election committee chairman, Rabbi Daniel Tropper, said in an interview at his Jerusalem office on Wednesday.

Tropper has been legally barred from revealing how many people have already submitted paper forms to join the party, but he said 12,000 people have joined the party online. He expressed confidence that the 28,000 paid members required to break even in covering the cost of the drive will be easily achieved, with the bulk of the membership forms to be submitted on the drive’s final days.
