The Israeli Political System: An Insider's Perspective

7 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, 2019

“The Israeli Political System: An Insider’s Perspective,” will be the topic of a talk presented by Eitan Teiger, a shaliach (emissary) from Stand With Us,  at Congregation Beth Israel. Teiger will also talk about the results of the recent Israeli election and its potential implications for Israel and Jews in the Diaspora.

Teiger, 26, was born and raised in Herzliya, a suburb of Tel Aviv. Recently, he received his bachelor’s degree in Government, Diplomacy, and Strategy at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya. In his final year of studies, Teiger interned for a member from the centrist Yesh Atid (“There is a Future”) party in the Knesset, Israel’s national parliament. In this role, he researched topics that the party hoped to pass, and wrote speeches to be read in the Knesset.

StandWithUs is dedicated to providing historical facts and context in a fair and unbiased manner. Through speakers and materials, the ogranization helps people understand the complex issues facing Israel and its neighbors, through the lens of real people and real stories.

The May 21 event will be held in the synagogue’s Beit Midrash. Light refreshments will be provided.
