United Torah Judaism
United Torah
Torah
Judaism (Hebrew: יַהֲדוּת הַתּוֹרָה הַמְאוּחֶדֶת‬, Transliterated: Yahadut HaTora HaMeuhedet; UTJ) is an alliance of Degel HaTorah and Agudat Israel, two small Israeli Haredi
Haredi
(ultra-Orthodox) political parties in the Knesset. It was first formed in 1992. The two parties have not always agreed with each other about policy matters. However, over the years, they have co-operated and united as a voting bloc in order to win the maximum number of seats in the Knesset, since many extra votes can be wasted if election thresholds are not attained under Israel's proportional representation parliamentary system. When UTJ joined Ariel Sharon's coalition in 2004, it split into its two constituent factions of Degel HaTorah and Agudat Israel

Rapprochement
In international relations, a rapprochement, which comes from the French word rapprocher ("to bring together"), is a re-establishment of cordial relations, as between two countries.[1] In the political scene of an individual country, rapprochement means the bringing together of diverse political factions as, for example, during metapolitefsi in Greece. Other examples of its use are the mending of relations between the United States under Richard Nixon and the People's Republic of China from 1972 onwards. Additionally, the period known as détente, or "relaxation", between the United States and the Soviet Union during the 1970s was a time of rapprochement. Rapprochement also refers to a human developmental milestone usually occurring between 15 and 24 months. The child moves away from and then returns to the mother for reassurance (Mahler).
