As the only functioning Democracy in the region, Israel’s politics are full of tumult and triumph. Now, on the precipice of its fourth national election in the last two years, the Israeli political landscape is more compelling than ever.

Join us for this three-act dive into Israeli politics with experts and voters live from Israel. With the next national election set for March 23rd, two of the sessions will be before the vote to set the stage. Then, we’ll meet again after to wade through the results.
