The Rebbe Nachman of Breslov Hasidic movement announced they will run as a political party in the upcoming elections under the name "Kulanu Haverim (We're all friends) – Na-Nach".

 

The newly established party's goals were announced on Monday, and include: faith, security, joy, and unity among Israeli citizens.

Sharon Kanaffo, one of the party's founders, told Ynet: "We believe the Israeli people love Rebbe Nachman of Breslov… we would love to have experts in security or economy join us, but only if they have good intentions and no secret agenda.

 

"The point is to make what we do all throughout the year on a larger scale… we want to have a positive impact on people's lives."

 

Asked about the party's agenda, Kanaffo said: "Our list for the Knesset is full of people who only want to do good and help others… though we haven't thought of any specific law we would like to put forward yet."

 

The Breslov Hasidic movement is a religious movement established in the Ukraine about 220 years ago. Many of its followers are considered to be repentant believers.

 

Akiva Novick is a Ynet and Yedioth Ahronoth correspondence.
