Israel’s New Government:
What Can We Expect—and Can it Survive?
A Webinar with David Horovitz, Editor, Times of Israel
Moderated by Jeff Schoenfeld, JFNA’s Chair of the Israel & Overseas Committee
After a series of four inconclusive elections over the last two years, Israel finally has a new government – one of the most diverse in history – but one that will face many challenges to its longevity.

Join us for an in-depth analysis by Times of Israel Editor David Horovitz of how Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his Cabinet will reshape the political landscape, and the impact of this newly formed government on policy toward Iran, issues of religion and state, relations with the Diaspora, and so much more.

Israelis Weigh In: A Deep Dive Into JPPI’s Pluralism Index

Federations work to strengthen Israeli society – to support a caring, vibrant, inclusive and secure country. Join the Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) as we delve into two issues from their 2021 Pluralism Index – religious diversity and Arab-Jewish relations – through the lens of Israeli public opinion. And learn how we can use this data to inform our communities’ strategic investment in Israel and in the Israelis.

We are experiencing an alarming spike in antisemitism in Canada. If you don’t act, who will?

Inaction increases the chance that Jewish children will face a future of fear in their neighborhoods, their schools, and community institutions.

You can, you must, do something about it.
