Description:

A Zionist religious party that was established in Jerusalem in 1922.

In the elections for the First Knesset, the party ran within the framework of the United Religious Front. In the elections for the Second Knesset, it ran independently under the name "Torah Va'avoda - Hapo'el Hamizrahi".
