The Israel Hofsheet organization that advocates for religious freedom in Israel is threatening to take legal action against former Yisrael Beytenu MK Eli Avidar after he announced the formation of a new party with the same name, “Israel Hofsheet” or “Free Israel” in English.

“With all due respect to MK Avidar and his passing political trend, there is only one Israel Hofsheet. We will act in any legal way to prevent him from using the organization’s name for political purposes. We wish Mr. Avidar success in his new path, but we insist that it will not be on our backs,” says Israel Hofsheet CEO Uri Keidar.
