Israel Election Phone Briefing
with the Jerusalem Post‘s Yaakov Katz
and acclaimed political journalist Akiva Bigman
Recorded September 19, 2019


Last week, Israelis headed to the polls for the second time in six months to elect the political leadership of the Jewish State. Benjamin Netanyahu recently overtook Israel’s founding premier, David Ben-Gurion, as the longest serving Prime Minister. Will he and the Likud-led coalition be returned to power, or will Israelis turn the page and entrust a new leader and a new vision?

To help us make sense of the election’s politics, as well as what its results express about this moment in Israeli culture, the Jewish Leadership Conference invites you to listen to our post-election telephone briefing with Jerusalem Post editor-in-chief Yaakov Katz, and Akiva Bigman, an acclaimed political writer at Israel Hayom and Mida. The call was recorded on September 19, 2019.
