(Still) Making Sense of Israel's Elections: An Update on How Different Democracies Operate

Israeli democracy is different from American’s presidential model. How does parliamentary democracy work (or does it), why have Israelis voted in four national elections in two years, and how do we understand what forces are at work to deny Israel an operating government? Do the Israeli election of March 23, 2021, and the American election of November 3, 2020 change the relationship between the two countries?

Join us to unpack the outcomes from the March 2021 election, some of the history of the US – Israel relationship, Israel’s Basic laws, and some recent trends to understand the workings of Israel’s political system.
