Israel's New Government - What We Need To Know
Tuesday, December 7, 2021, 12:00–1:00 pm
This year has seen the first major shift in years in Israeli leadership, with the emergence of an unlikely coalition. Join us over (virtual) lunch to learn more about the new government. Who are they? What makes them different from the prior leadership? What challenges and opportunities do they face? And how is the future of the America-Israel relationship being shaped by new administrations in both countries? Experts Dr. Shira Efron (Israel Policy Forum), Nimrod Dweck (Darkenu), and Nadav Tamir (J Street) will offer answers to these and other pressing questions—including your own.
