Yesh Atid leader names Rabbi Piron as No. 2

Yesh Atid party leader Yaid Lapid announced on Sunday Rabbi Shai Piron as the party's number two on the list for Knesset elections.
Piron is the head of Petah Tikva Yeshivas, which includes a hesder yeshiva and a high school, and director-general of Hakol Hinuch, the Movement for the Advancement of Education in Israel, and a founder of the religious-Zionist organization Tzohar.
The appointment of a prominent religious-zionist rabbi atop Lapid's list appears to be the culmination of his regular efforts to remove this stigma and make his party more marketable nationally, including to the religious.
