Director-general of Immigrant Absorption Min. quits
Landver says Aparzev tendered resignation in order to run for leadership of local council in the northern town of Katzrin.
Immigrant Absorption Ministry director-general Dmitry Aparzev handed in his resignation letter, only months after beginning his second term, Minister Sofa Landver told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Landver said that Aparzev had tendered his resignation in order to run for the leadership of the local council in the northern town of Katzrin.

Aparzev made waves in April when he gave an interview in Ma’ariv calling for the Jewish Agency to “return the keys” of aliya, and attacked the private aliya organization Nefesh B’Nefesh.

“There cannot be a situation where every American immigrant must pass through a private organization,” Aparzev told the newspaper.

In response, a spokesman for Landver expressed the minister’s support for the Jewish Agency and Nefesh B’Nefesh. Landver is now serving her second consecutive term as minister.
