Jewish Agency interim head to continue position for now

Hagoel also currently serves as the head of the World Zionist Organization.

The race for the new Jewish Agency head was upended when MK Elazar Stern retracted his candidacy after saying that he had shredded anonymous complaints that came to him during his military service.
