NRP opens doors to non-religious members
11/03/2005
The National Religious Party's constitution committee decided on Thursday to permit non-religious people to join the party, and even run for Knesset on the NRP list. NRP chairman Zevulun Orlev called the decision "historic" and said he believes it will change the party from a small and sectarian to a party where everyone who wants to see a more Jewish country can feel welcome. Until the decision, party members and candidates had to sign forms indicating that they maintained a religious lifestyle and kept the commandments.
