The Public Council of Habayit Hayehudi, the newly formed successor to the National Union-National Religious Party, chose Prof. Danny Hershkovitz as its head late Monday night. Hershkovitz is a mathematician from the Technion. The council ignored pressure from MKs and veteran supporters of the National Religious Party to choose a more well-known figure to lead the list.
