Adina Bar Shalom: I support Shas

Adina Bar Shalom, the eldest daughter of Rav Ovadiah Yosef announced today she is supporting Shas and its leader Aryeh Deri. Instead of running for Knesset she will lead a committee along with Yafah Deri (Aryeh’s wife) tasked with improving the lives of women within Ultra Orthodox society.
