The New Way (Hebrew: דרך חדשה‎, Derekh Hadasha) was a short-lived political faction in Israel in 2001.

Background[edit]

The faction was formed on 6 March 2001 when three MKs, Amnon Lipkin-Shahak, Dalia Rabin-Pelossof and Uri Savir, broke away from the Centre Party.

Two days after the party's formation Lipkin-Shahak and Savir resigned from the Knesset, and were replaced by new Centre Party MKs David Magen and Nehama Ronen.[1] With Rabin-Pelossof as its only member, New Way carried on as a single-member group for a short time, before she joined the Labor Party faction of Ehud Barak's One Israel on 7 May 2001 and the group was dissolved.
