Israel’s Election Day: Live Behind the Scenes with New York Times Bestselling Author, Yossi Klein Halevi and Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman, President of the Shalom Hartman Institute
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jerusalem, Israel – On November 1, at 2:00 pm ET, as the polls close on Israel’s fifth election in less than four years, Hartman and Klein Halevi will offer real-time insights on the big ideas of this complex moment and what it portends for the State of Israel, the future of Zionism, and the Jewish people.
Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman is president of the Shalom Hartman Institute and the founder of some of the most extensive education, training, and enrichment programs for scholars, educators, rabbis, and religious and lay leaders in Israel and North America. He is joined by Yossi Klein Halevi, the author of the New York Times bestseller, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, Like Dreamers: The Story of the Israeli Paratroopers Who Reunited Jerusalem and Divided a Nation, and other celebrated books.

Reflecting on the public mood, Klein Halevi shares, "There's a great deal of understandable anxiety among many Israelis and friends of Israel abroad about what these elections could mean for the future of Israeli democracy. Our hope is to provide some context and clarity at the most emotionally loaded moment of the election season -- the moment the real results start coming in."
