Thirty-three Jewish leaders from around the world signed a letter over the weekend endorsing Labor MK Nachman Shai for the chairmanship of the Keren Kayemet Le'Israel.

"We have all had the opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with Dr. Nachman Shai," the Jewish leaders wrote. "While the other candidates may have fine attributes, Nachman has earned our trust through his many years of experience, hard work and service to the Jewish people."

Shai will face off at Monday's Labor convention against incumbent Efi Stenzler, MK Danny Atar and Yeruham mayor Benny Biton. Stenzler was endorsed last week by more than 30 mayors, Atar by MK Eitan Cabel, and Biton by MKs Shelly Yacimovich and Miki Rosenthal.
