|Mayor of Jerusalem|
|Preceded by||Shlomo Zalman Shragai|
|Succeeded by||Gershon Agron|
As a member of the Mizrachi political party, he was appointed as a compromise between the parties of the city hall, after Jerusalem’s first elected mayor, Zalman Shragai, had resigned. On April 1955, a few months before the following elections, he was fired by the Minister of Interior, who replaced him with an appointed committee (ועדה קרואה).
