In a positive step toward avoiding a repeat election, Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman is meeting with Degel HaTorah spiritual mentor Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky's grandson Yanky.

Yanky Kanievsky is a political operative and a religious influencer who has been involved in many key recent political deals. He was credited with making the connection between Degel HaTorah and Yisrael Beytenu that led to the election of Moshe Lion as mayor of Jerusalem. Liberman and Kanievsky are expected to discuss a compromise on the conscription bill that could enable Liberman's party to enter Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition.
