Rechnitz, purpose of mission was to strengthen the Yeshiva world in Eretz Yisrael

Gedolim letter
In an Interview with  Israeli media Reb Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz explained his recent  trip to EY was not to to get involved in the current dispute between Arye deri and Eli Yishai. The Gedolim of America, the Novominsker rebbe and rav Shmuel Kamenetzky, sent him for the sole purpose of having Arye Deri return to lead the shas party. Deri's return is essential to the Torah world in Eretz yisrael, it will give the frum parties more political clout in the knesset and will enable more funding to support yeshivos and kollelim. It would have been nice to make shalom between the two parties but that was not why he came, he said. Time will tell if Deri will return.
