A few words on the parties themselves: Jewish Home (Bayit Yehudi) is the party most associated with the settler movement. previously is was called the National Religious Party (NRP). Yesh Atid is a new party, formed by former Channel 2 anchorman Yair Lapid; it is not represented in the current Knesset; United Torah Judaism (Yahadut HaTorah) is the Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox party. Am Shalem is a newly formed moderate orthodox party. In the aggregation into blocks (below), we didn’t place Am Shalem in any of the sides. There are two non-Zionist Palestinian parties in the Knesset – Balad and Raam-Taal – and one non-Zionist joint, Arab-Jewish party (Hadash).

On November 28th Former Kadima leader Tzipi Livni has announced that she will run in a new party, called Hatnu’a (“The movement”).

On October 25th the Likud and Avigdor Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu announced that they will run under a joint ticket. The new party will be called Likud Beiteinu. The Number for the Likud in Polls conducted after October 25th reflect the result for the joint list.

While the application of the following terms can be and often is disputed, it is common to refer to groups of parties as comprising left, center and right blocs (see chart below). The right includes Likud (with Israel Beitenu), Shas, United Torah Judaism, Jewish Home. The center bloc is comprised of Kadima, Yesh Atid and Hatnu’a; and the left of Labor, Hadash, Ra’am-Ta’al, Meretz and Balad. Some people refer to the ultra-Orthodox parties (Shas, United Torah Judaism) as a sub-block within the right, and to the non-Zionist parties (Hadash, Ra’am-Ta’al, Balad) as a sub block within the left.
