Israeli Elections Are Over: What’s Next? Luncheon Discussion
What could have been the most consequential elections for Israelis in decades is now over. The outcome remains the same: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu managed to keep his job for another term after one of the toughest election fights he has ever encountered. What does his tight race against centrist Benny Gantz have to say about the future of Israeli politics? Is this the end of the two-state paradigm?
Ambassador Judith Varnai Shorer, Consul General of Israel to the Southeastern U.S., will be in conversation with Dov Wilker, Regional Director of the American Jewish Committee Atlanta, on what to expect of PM Netanyahu’s fifth-term, the prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace, and what’s next for U.S.-Israel relations.
