Rabbis set meeting to try to end NRP, NU impasse

A number of prominent rabbis plan to meet with National Religious Party leader Zevulun Orlev and National Union Leader Benny Elon Sunday in an effort to revive the stalled talks with regard to a joint list for the 17th Knesset. Rabbis Haim Druckman, Zalman Melamed and Yakov Ariel are among those who will meet with the two leaders. The two parties are quarreling over the issues of leadership, representation on the list and the principles that define their joint platform.
