Join us for a Sunday morning catch up with professor, author, journalist and political pundit Peter Beinart. He will be discussing everything you need to know about the 2020 American elections.
He will look at the successes and difficulties faced by Jewish Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg and the response of the American Jewish community. Beinart will examine the inroads made by the Repubican party with Jewish voters due to Trump’s moves to shift the US embassy to Jerusalem and recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan.
Join us to hear how all these factors will play out in the November elections? This is also a chance to ask him your probing questions about the elections.
