The High Court of Justice ruled on Wednesday that Jewish National Fund/Keren
Kayemet LeYisrael chairman Effi Stenzler can keep his post at least until a
district court ruling that is expected next month.
Shalom Simhon, who was elected to succeed Stenzler by the Reform/Labor
faction in the Zionist Congress, had asked the High Court to cancel an
injunction that prevents Simhon from taking office.
The court rejected the
request, which will prevent Simhon from getting elected by the JNF’s
council when it convenes later this month.
