Director of Israel's Reform movement to run for Labor

Rabbi Gilad Kariv, director of the Reform Movement in Israel, will seek a place on Labor's Knesset list, Israel Radio reported Thursday.
On Wednesday, Labor chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich welcomed educator Chili Tropper and former Sayeret Matkal (General Staff Reconnaissance Unit) commander Omer Bar-Lev to the party’s ranks.
Bar-Lev, 59, is the son of former IDF chief of staff Haim Bar- Lev. He is the director-general of Paieon Medical, a cardiac imaging company, and founder of Aharai, an NGO that teaches leadership skills to underprivileged youth.
