Agudat Israel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (282 words)
Agudat Israel (Agudat Yisrael or Agudath Israel) began as the original political party representing Haredi Judaism in Israel.
It was the umbrella party for almost all Haredi Jews in Israel, and before that in the British Mandate of Palestine.
Agudat Israel supported Sharon's decision in the recent unilateral disengagement plan of 2005.
Israel's Odd Couple: The 1984 Elections and the National Unity Government (5607 words)
The disaster that befell Agudat Israel removed much of the pressure on the NRP from the right, which had forced it to adopt more extreme stances on questions of religion and state than its accommodationist orientation required.
The old NRP was uncomfortable whenever Agudat Israel insisted on matters like easier exemption of women from army service, amending the Law of Return with regard to the definition of who was a Jew, or insisting on more stringent state enforcement of public Sabbath observance.
Indeed, Agudat Israel was often as interested in embarrassing the NRP with its proposed legislation as it was in gaining passage of the legislation itself.
