The New Right (Hebrew: הימין החדש‎, HaYamin HaHadash) is a right-wing political party in Israel, established in December 2018 by justice minister Ayelet Shaked and education minister Naftali Bennett. The party aims to be open to both religious and secular people.

History[edit]

The party was formed in December 2018, when Naftali Bennett, Ayelet Shaked, and Shuli Mualem left the Jewish Home,[4][3] using the registration of the former Tzalash party, since their party, Jewish Home, is a religious party.[5][6]

It was announced on 2 January 2019 that The Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick had joined the party.[7] Deaf rights activist Shirley Pinto joined the party on 8 January 2019;[8] Shaked stated that Pinto would be an "effective advocate for the rights of people with disabilities".[9]

Party goals[edit]

  • Full and equal partnership between Religious and Secular Jews
  • Support for a one-state solution in the Israel-Palestine conflict
  • The preservation of a strong right-wing party[3]
