The election for chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel was postponed. The move will give both candidates — Israel’s former minister of Diaspora affairs, Natan Sharansky, and Ra’anana Mayor Zeev Bielski — time to fortify their support, a World Zionist Organization official said. The Zionist General Council voted Wednesday to grant both candidates seats on the Zionist Executive.
