WATCH NOW March 22: Four elections in two years: Is Israel’s democracy in crisis or stronger than ever?

Watch the recording here.

Why can’t Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hold a stable coalition together? Where are the viable alternatives? How has the coronavirus pandemic changed the political dynamics? As Israelis head back to the polls, our editor-in-chief, Jodi Rudoren hosts a lively discussion with the American-Israeli author Yossi Klein Halevi, a senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute; Tamar Hermann, a public opinion specialist at the Israel Democracy Institute; Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation; and Jacob Kornbluh, the Forward’s senior politics reporter.

This talk is in partnership with the Ruderman Family Foundation.
