Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appointed the Union of Right-Wing Party leader Rafi Peretz as Education Minister and Betzalel Smotrich as Transportaion Minister on Monday.

Smotrich will also hold a seat in the Security cabinet, while Peretz will be serving on the cabinet as an observer. Netanyahu and the new religious right wing leaders agreed that the existing status-quo concerning Jewish religion and the state of Israel will be upheld.
