On March 23rd, 2021 Israelis will go to the polls for the fourth time in two years. As Jews in the diaspora, we are often left wondering how this will end and the impact on those living in Israel.
Our series will run on three Sunday mornings; February 21st, February 28th, and March 21st. The Zoom room will open at 9:20 a.m. and the program will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m.

Our first guests will be joining us from Israel and we are so grateful to them for taking time to join us.
