MK Zevulun Orlev gained a boost in his effort to unseat Science and Technology Minister Daniel Herschkowitz as head of Habayit Hayehudi Thursday when 10 deputy mayors in the party endorsed him.

The deputy mayors are from Jerusalem, Modi'in, Ramat Gan, Ashkelon, Or Akiva, Givatayim, Ma'ale Adumim, Kiryat Motzkin, Shoham, and Elyachin.

"We met Orlev through his nonstop work for education, Torah and religious Zionism," they wrote in a letter. "Our communities owe him a debt of gratitude. Orlev is the right man at the right time."

Herschkowitz was endorsed this week by ORT director-general Tzvika Peleg. The third candidate in the race, former Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria director-general Naftali Bennett was endorsed by Binyamin Regional Council deputy head Moti Yogev.
