The solution to the crisis is not dependant upon a particular leader or political party. It is dependant upon a completely different leadership consciousness. There is only one possible source for the needed moral-spiritual change: Jewish consciousness.
Jewish consciousness does not mean religious consciousness. It means Jewish identity, Jewish faith, cultural values and morals. It means Jewish historical awareness, knowledge of our Jewish roots, Judaism's sources and destiny. Without these we will not find significance and thus will not have the strength for the struggles that our nation still must face. The same applies to all aspects of life in Israel; education, society, culture, economy and more. If we understand that classical Zionism is spent and that Israel needs a new consciousness to continue to develop, the only realistic alternative is classical Jewish consciousness.
The Political Move
Manhigut Yehudit was established in 1996 precisely to create leadership based on Jewish consciousness. Our goal is not to achieve sectoral gains. Our goal is to lead the entire Nation of Israel. That is why Manhigut Yehudit joined the political party that most faithfully represents the entire nation: the Likud. The Likud is a democratic, national, political tool that allows people representing a rainbow of nationalist views to become members and to democratically influence the party. As a national leadership party open to traditional Jewish content, the Likud is the most relevant political home for the realization of Manhigut Yehudit's goals.
