Date: 
December 5, 2019 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Body: 
This past September, Israel held its second election in six months. The results remain inconclusive, coalition negotiations are stagnant and a third election is becoming increasingly likely.

Israeli elections are famously tumultuous, but this is unprecedented. Join J. editor Sue Fishkoff and visiting scholar Dr. Tomer Persico as they discuss the aftermath of the Israeli election, dynamics in Israeli society that are shaping negotiations to form a new government and what lies in store for Israel's political future.

BENS parent, Tomer Persico teaches in the Department of Comparative Religion at Tel Aviv University and is currently the Koret Visiting Assistant Professor of Jewish and Israel Studies at UC Berkeley.
