Big blow for the charedi political machine.
What I find fascinating is how poorly they read the electorate. Their campaign tagline was ממשיכים את המהפכה when that's the last thing people wanted. They wanted nothing to do with the existing candidate. It took rabbinic coercion to get them to 49%. With a new vanilla candidate and a tagline of מחדשים את המהפכה they would have won easily

I think that more than 25% of the people who voted for Abutbol are secretly (or not so secretly) relieved she won.

She has only two options for not being a one and done mayor.
1. Import non charedim into the city
2. Hold up her campaign promises and be a great mayor for all the residents of beit shemesh

I hope she chooses option 2

I hear that thousands of chareidim have voted for her. The previous mayor was a very Ehrlich man but just wasn’t so good at being mayor
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

This is a great thing for anyone who cares about the well-being of the city, and not just pushing money to Charedi neighborhoods.

Not so Ehrlich from what I hear, and I live there. Lots of people connected to him are on trial for corruption. It's mafia politics. Charedim who didn't like that voted for her. Also because the job wasn't getting done.
