Two Quick Looks at the Israeli Elections

Adas Israel Congregation

Washington, DC 20008

March 11 with Paul Scham
March 25 with Michael Brenner

Israel’s third general election in less than 11 months will take place on March 2, held because the previous two were deadlocked and unable to produce a government. The third time has to be the charm, as politicians and citizens alike are sick of the stalemate. In each of these one-session classes, our speaker will examine the March 2 results, try to make sense of them, and hazard some guesses as to where Israeli politics and society may be headed. Stay tuned for more sessions and perspectives–watch our website for updates!

Paul Scham is Research Associate Professor of Israel Studies at the University of Maryland and Executive Director of its Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies. He is a prolific writer on Israeli politics.

Michael Brenner is the Abensohn Chair in Israel Studies and Director of the Center for Israel Studies at American University and author of In Search of Israel: The History of an Idea.
