The winners of the top four spots after Naftali Bennett in the Jewish Home primaries are former MK Nissan Smoliansky, Ayelet Shaked, MK Ori Orbach, and Avi Wortzman, the national-religious Israeli website, Srugim, reports.

All but Smoliansky are allies of Naftali Bennett who trounced MK Zvulon Orlev to become the new chairman of the party last week.

The other candidates who did not make the top five are Doron Donino, American-born Jeremy Gimpel, Shuli Meulam, Rabbi Nachman Misimi, Amiad Taub and MK Gila Finkelstein.

Using his Tuesday Night Live talk show as a base, Gimpel and his partner Ari Abramowitz launched a joint campaign for the Knesset several months ago, registering 3000 people, including many English-speakers to the party in hopes that this would propel at least one of them to a realistic spot on the party’s list.

The party’s list will be merged with that of the National Union, and together the two are expect to receive more seats than they would separately, currently seven.

Gimpel received 15,360 and ranked 8th among the candidates competing on Tuesday’s primary, which would make him 9th place on the Jewish Home list. That number which would be pushed even further back after the merger and he would not be expected to make it into the Knesset.
