In a very simple office on the fifth floor of the first building at Safra Square, simultaneously talking on her office phone and answering to a call on her cellphone, Hagit Moshe is adapting smoothly to her new position as deputy mayor and head of the finance committee at the city council.

With a white knitted beret covering part of her hair, light makeup and a large smile, Moshe is slowly but surely sliding into her new position. Facing the extreme opposition of her partner on the list, Arieh King, and an awkward situation in which the religious sector is represented by two lists, Moshe declares her aim is to bring back the old, moderate and safe way of the religious-Zionist sector, “the old National Religious Party we all come from.”
