Gur knesset member decides


MK Yaakov Litzman (Agudat Yisrael), chairman of the influential Knesset Finance Committee, is considering not running in the March elections and has turned to his spiritual leader, the Admor of Gur, Rabbi Yaakov Alter, for his advice. Litzman said that he would follow the Hasidic leader's instructions in full.
Alter is likely to order Litzman, regarded as a tough committee chief, to stay on. Litzman has fought for improved child allowances and recently helped to increase state spending on ultra-Orthodox schools by NIS 40 million.
