It was an interview on the topic of the singles scene in the religious sector that propelled Deputy Minister of Transportation Tzipi Hotovely to a media career, which eventually paved her way to politics.

Hotovely, an unknown Bar-Ilan University law student, was interviewed by Dan Margalit on his Erev Hadash television program on the implications of the rising age of religious singles. He then asked the articulate young woman to become a panelist representing the Right on Channel 10’s Moetzet Hahahamim, which he anchored.
