Atid Ehad (Hebrew: עתיד אחד‎‎, lit. One Future) is a political party in Israel.

Background and ideology[edit]

Atid Ehad was established in order to contest the 2006 elections and was headed by Avraham Neguise.

The party primarily represented the interests of Ethiopian Jews living in Israel, though its membership included non-Ethiopians such as Yitzakael Shtetzler and Yossi Abramovich, who were second and third members on its Knesset List in the 2006 campaign. The party supported bringing to Israel the remaining Jews in Ethiopia and strengthening integration efforts for the community.[1]

In the 2006 elections the party won 14,005 votes (0.45% of the total), not enough to cross the 2% threshold required to enter the Knesset. The party did not run in the 2009 elections.

The party, now headed by Shtetzler, ran again in the 2013 and 2015 elections under an anti-pornography platform, in both cases registering only Shtetzler as a candidate. In both case the party resigned from the elections less than a week before election day.
