Manhigut Yehudit

Manhigut Yehudit (מנהיגות יהודית "Jewish Leadership") is a movement started by Moshe Feiglin and Shmuel Sackett to lead the State of Israel with, in their words, "authentic Jewish values." This has been widely interpreted, both by Manhigut supporters and outside observers, as closer to Orthodox Judaism but without a Galut or Exile Mentality. The movement opposes religious coercion, and wants Jewish identity as prescribed by the Tanakh or Bible and authentic Jewish teachings to become Israel's official culture.

In 2005, Manhigut Yehudit became the largest faction within the Likud Central Committee, the body that decides Likud Party policy.
