Dr. Yifat Shasha-Biton joins Kulanu

Kulanu is expected to announce today that Dr. Yifat Shasha-Biton will be running on their Knesset list in the upcoming election. She is a former deputy mayor of Kiryat Shmona and currently is one of the heads of the academic college in Katzrin.

Shasha-Biton will be the second woman to join the Kulanu list, following Rachel Azaria, another educator who is currently the deputy mayor of Jerusalem. The choices of Shasha-Biton and Azaria may indicate that Moshe Kahlon intends to make investment in education one of his flagship issues in the upcoming election.
