the Sefardi Eida

There is an interesting pashkevil being posted around Haredi towns and neighborhoods:

The pashkevil is published by a group calling themselves "The Sefardi Eida Hachareidis". They are basically the Satmar of the Sefardim.

The pashkevil basically says it is prohibited to participate in elections in Israel - both national elections and municipal elections.

I dont know anything about this group. A search online has just a few mentions from 2015 in which they also publicized extreme anti-government positions, but besides for that I don't see anything else about them.

I'd like to know more, if any of you are familiar with them. What are their positions and beliefs? What do they do besides for putting out an anti-elections message once every few years? What issues do they get involved in? How many people do they represent?

At worst they'll take away another handful of votes from Shas, but I don't see them being more influential than that..

  1. It's an old group that's been around a very long time led by Rav Ben Tzion Mutzafi Shlit"a's father ZT"L. Always had a small following.

    Wikpedia has a bit more info.
