United Religious Front
- In the election to the first Knesset in 1949, the various religious groups—Mizrachi, Hapoel Hamizrachi, Agudat Israel, and Poalei Agudat Israel—all ran on a single electoral list known as the United Religious Front. The front won 16 seats in the Knesset, but it was not sustained, and the religious political parties ran individually or in smaller combinations in subsequent elections.
