Webinar: The Israeli Political System & Political Map
March 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Join CMEP and OneVoice for a discussion on the Israeli political system with an emphasis on the upcoming Israeli election. Israel will hold its fourth election in two years on March 23.
The Israeli Political System & Political Map webinar covers the parliamentary and electoral system, the current make-up of political parties, what they each stand for, and how that takes shape on the ground. This program serves as a timely tool to better understand the Israeli political landscape, as Israel will hold elections for the fourth time in two years this Spring.
Hela Lahar is currently serving as the Acting Executive Director of the OneVoice Movement. Born and raised in the US and having lived half of her life in Israel, and studying Diplomacy and Security Studies at Tel Aviv University for her Master’s degree, Hela has a first-hand understanding of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Prior to working at OneVoice, Hela was the founding director of the Center for Israel Education at Columbia/Barnard Hillel, designing and leading the entire Israel education curriculum, including but not limited to annual programs, with diverse target audiences, and delegations to the region, leading education on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Hela has been in senior roles as a Jewish educator for over 15 years, across the East Coast and Israel and is a certified facilitator with Resetting The Table.
*Why is CMEP asking for donations for these events?
Due to Covid-19 all of our in-person programming has been canceled since March 2020 and this will continue to be the norm until at least Fall 2021. As a nonprofit advocacy organization, our advocacy summits and other events are one of the main streams of income we have as an organization. CMEP Journeys is our attempt to offer creative and interesting opportunities to our community. We understand that the cost can be prohibitive for some which is why we are asking for “suggested donation” amounts as we do not want to exclude anyone.
