MK Rabbi Yaakov Litzman (UTJ) is slated to be re-appointed Housing and Construction Minister, a post he was assigned in the new unity government.

The appointment, announced Monday, came two months after Rabbi Litzman resigned the post in protest over the government’s decision to enact a lockdown for the Yamim Noraim, and not a month earlier, which could’ve saved many lives.
