Meet the Candidate: Asya Entov
I am a journalist for the Russian media here in Israel. I also manage the Russian-language portal, Rjews. I appear frequently on current events television programs in Russian and write opinion articles that appear in Russian newspapers and internet sites.
I was active in Zo Artzeinu, founded by Moshe Feiglin against the Oslo Accords. In 1994 I joined the Likud and was active in the party as a member of the Manhigut Yehudit faction of the Likud from 1995. I was a member of the Likud Central Committee and secretariat. In 2017 I left the Likud and joined the Zehut party.
I have a master’s degree in political science from Bar Ilan University and a master’s in applied mathematics.

Zehut is the natural continuation of the active part that I took in Zo Artzeinu and Manhigut Yehudit in the Likud.
What do you bring with you to Zehut?
A reputation as a valued political analyst, who enjoys an honored role in the Russian language media.
20 years of experience in public activism for the Land of Israel.
Clear ideology based on deep academic research and broad knowledge.
On what issues will you focus?
Liberty – the goal for which I left the USSR.
Jewish identity – the reason why I made Aliyah to Israel.
How will you bring voters to Zehut?
For more than 20 years I have been working on making Moshe Feiglin’s ideas accessible to Russian olim. Two of his books and more than 400 of his articles that we have translated into Russian are very popular and bring a broad community of Russian speakers to Zehut.
Currently I am organizing the Russian headquarters of Zehut and run Moshe Feiglin’s Facebook page in Russian. The very fact that I, a known figure among Russian olim, left the Likud and joined Zehut – created a lot of interest.
Why should we vote for you?
Seriously, because it is important for the party to be represented by various facets of Israeli society: olim, women, traditional and settlers – like me.
