Amsalem meets with Habayit Hayehudi but keeps options open

Former Shas MK Haim Amsalem met recently with the head of of Habayit Hayehudi's election committee, Rabbi Danny Tropper, about the possibility of running with the party, a source close to Amsalem said Monday.
Amsalem, who broke off from Shas two years ago, formed a party called Am Shalem that focuses on uniting all Jews and restoring moderate Judaism to Israel.
“I will be on a party list,” Amsalem said. “I have received enticing offers from many parties.”
Am Shalem officials said Habayit Hayehudi could be a good fit to run together but that they have also received overtures from Likud and other parties.
