Naftali Bennett, a former aide to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, was appointed Sunday to the position of Director-General of the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip.
He replaces Pinchas Wallerstein who resigned from the post a few weeks ago.
Under the Kadima government, when the Likud party was in the opposition, Bennett served as Netanyahu's chief of staff.
He is the co-founder of Cyota, which RSA Security purchased for $145 million in 2005.
