Pre-Elections in Israel: Elections 101

Tuesday, April 2 & Wednesday, April 10 | 7:00-8:30PM | Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, 334 Amsterdam Ave

On April 9, Israel will be holding a critical general election. After three terms of Bibi Netanyahu as prime minister, the center-left block will try to win, and the right ultra-orthodox block will try to maintain its power. The Israeli political system is more complicated than ever before, and, in turn, hard to navigate. These two sessions, held pre and post elections respectively, will help you understand the political map leading up to the elections, and analyze their results.
