Israel is in the midst of its fourth Parliamentary election in two years. The Knesset and the Government are barely functioning in one of the most challenging times in Israel’s history. People have lost faith in their elected officials who seemed detached from any reality or sense of responsibility. Why is Israeli Democracy on life support? Do Israelis have a pulse? Understanding who Israelis are and what they think is the key to understanding Israel. Utilizing exclusive public opinion research and polling data, a thorough perspective of Israelis is presented. What is the difference between Israeli Jews and Israeli Israelis? Ashkenazim and Sephardim? Left and Right? Religious and Secular? Veterans and Immigrants? Jews and Arabs? Learn how these various demographic groups impact the political system and the Knesset.
Join our panel of rabbis who lean left, right, and center for an honest discussion on the current state of affairs in Israel relating to the situation vis a vis the Palestinians and all aspects of Jewish life. Moderated by Lynne Wasserman, we will cover not only what we love about Israel, but also what bothers us and why. Bring your curiosity and your questions.
