MORESHET AVOT (Ancestral patrimony, in Hebrew)

Small Israeli religious political party, created in April 1996 by Rabbi Joseph Bagad, a dissident of Moledet, in anticipation of the May Knesset elections. Rabbi Bagad, a member of the Knesset since 1992 and considered to be a bit eccentric by many members of the Knesset, withdrew his candidacy a few days before the elections; but he ran again in 1999, gaining less than 1 percent of the vote. In 2003 the party again dropped out just before the elections.
