Eretz Yisrael Shelanu (Hebrew: ארץ ישראל שלנו‎, lit. Our Land of Israel) is a far-right religious party in Israel.[1] Founded by prominent Chabad Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpo on 11 November, it seeks to prevent both the creation of a Palestinian state as well as the destruction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

In 2008, in anticipation of the 2009 Knesset elections, Wolpe and his party merged with Baruch Marzel's Jewish National Front. The Knesset list was topped by Wolpe, Marzel and prominent Israeli musician Ariel Zilber. In the weeks prior to the election, the joint list agreed to run as part of the National Union list, with JNF member Michael Ben-Ari taking the 4th spot on the alliance's list. The Union won four seats, allowing Ben-Ari to enter the Knesset.
