Join New Israel Fund UK and Yachad on Feb 21, 2021, at 1:00PM Eastern / 10:00AM Pacific (6:00 PM UK time) for an in-depth explainer of the upcoming Israeli elections. The elections which take place on March 23rd will be the fourth set of elections in a two-year period.
We’ll be joined by Dahlia Scheindlin, leading Israeli public opinion expert and international political consultant, who will give us an overview of how Israel ended up conducting yet another round of elections, and introduce us to the different parties and players. We’ll look at who is in the running, what has happened to the people that are no longer in the picture, and what the potential outcomes might be for the issues we hold dear, and more broadly for Israeli democracy.
