Just 36 hours after Israel's election, NIF Australia is hosting an exclusive livestream briefing with former Knesset speaker and former chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel and World Zionist Organization, Avraham 'Avrum' Burg. 

What were the results? Who are the winners and losers? Who will make up Israel’s next coalition? What are the impacts on human rights, social justice, religious pluralism, Israel's minorities and the peace process? Join Avrum Burg and NIF Australia to dissect the election results.

Currently chairman of Molad, a new progressive thinktank and NIF grantee, Burg has decades of experience in government, civil society and Israel-Diaspora relations. He will offer his insight into the recent election campaign, the rise of Habayit Hayehudi, the fractured left and centre-left, the attempted expulsion of a Palestinian Israeli candidate, and what he thinks the next three years will bring for Israeli politics.

Join us on Thursday January 24th at 8:00 PM for a briefing and Q&A with one of Israel's most distinguished authors and politicians.

The easiest way is simply to log on to our website at 8:00 PM (Eastern time) on Thursday January 24th and watch the livestream as it happens. Just bookmark this page and we'll add the video here on the night.

You can ask your questions and add a comment next to the video, or using the Twitter hashtag, #NIFAUelection.

We also have limited spaces at venues in both Melbourne and Sydney to join other NIF supporters, come together and discuss the election results. But don’t worry if you can’t make it – you’ll get exactly the same experience and opportunity to ask questions from home.

We hope that you’ll join us as we try this new method of bringing NIF Australia supporters together to engage with critical issues affecting Israel and Australian Jewry.
