Ben Gvir names scion of prominent rabbinic family to far-right slate

Far-right MK Itamar Ben Gvir says he has selected the scion of a prominent rabbinic family for the No. 4 slot on his Otzma Yehudit party’s electoral slate.

Rabbi Amichai Eliyahu, who heads a rabbinical group, is the grandson of Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, a former chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel, and the son of Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, the rabbi of Safed and a leading national-religious figure.
