Full course description
One-time, online, 60 minute session
Israeli policy specialist Avishay Ben Sasson Gordis will unpack the results of the (second) 2019 Israeli elections. He will begin with a brief overview of the major players in this election, explain the voting outcomes, and explore some of the big questions at the forefront of Israeli discourse. Will current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be immune from indictment? What has become of the Israeli left? What will the relationship between religion and state be under the new Knesset? What should we look out for as a new coalition begins to form?
Participants will leave with a basic understanding of the major political parties in Israel. They will learn what happened in the most recent elections, and how the most recent elections may impact Israeli policy moving forward (both in terms of domestic issues and in terms of Israeli-Palestinian relations).
- Tuesday, September 24th, 2:00 - 3:00pm EST / 11:00am - 12:00 pm PST.
