The Strange Death and Curious Rebirth of the Israeli Left
Chair: Dahlia Scheindlin
Once the nation’s political powerhouse, the Israeli left is now a bit player in the country it created and ruled. What is behind its dramatic demise? Could it make a comeback? As Israel enters a post-Netanyahu era, one of the country’s leading correspondents, Anshel Pfeffer, explores the changing political mood and looks at whether the left can come up with a new story to tell Israelis. He will be in conversation with Israeli polling expert and political analyst Dahlia Scheindlin.
