National Home (הבית הלאומי‎, HaBayit HaLeumi) was a short-lived political faction in Israel during 2006.


National Home was formed on 5 February 2006 when two MKs, Hemi Doron and Eliezer Sandberg broke away from the Secular Faction (itself a recent breakaway from Shinui). The faction received 600,000 shekels in party funding (transferred from Hetz, the Secular Faction's new guise).[1]

The faction was dissolved shortly before the March 2006 elections when both Doron and Sandberg joined Likud.[2] They were included on Likud's Knesset list, placed in the symbolic 117th and 118th places in the party list, and both lost their seats.
