Mizrahi

Description:

Hamizrahi was a nationalist-religious Zionist movement founded in 1902, that functioned as an independent party until 1956. It was active in all of the Zionist Executives after 1921 and in all the Governments until 1956. The socio-political policy of the movement was moderate, and its main interest was to cater for the needs of the national-religious public, and to maintain certain religious characteristics of the State. In the elections for the First Knesset (the Constituent Assembly), Hamizrahi ran within the United Religious Front. For the Second Knesset, the party ran independently. In 1956, it formed the National Religious Party (Mafdal) together with Poel-Mizrahi.
