By Debbie Stone, Masa Israel Alumni Fellow

 

Having heard about the AIPAC Policy Conference for years, I was honored to attend this year’s conference as a Masa Israel Alumni Fellow. During my year as a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow in Netanya in 2013-2014, I became highly involved in the Masa Israel community, which helped me to develop a more profound connection to Israel.

Masa Israel Elections Workship in Jerusalem

Over 200 Masa Israel participants attended workshops, in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, that were a crash course in Israeli elections and the current political landscape. Attendees gained a basic understanding of the key issues concerning Israeli voters, as they prepare to head to the polls on March 17,2015.  The workshops also provided them with information about Israel's numerous political parties, their platforms and the candidates vying to become the next prime minister of the State of Israel.

 

The highlight of the evening, for both Masa Israel participants and staff members alike, were the panel sessions featuring influential leaders, thinkers and activists who discussed national security, the Israeli economy, the Israeli elections process, and why the 2015 Israeli elections are different than past elections.

 

In Jerusalem, Haviv Retig Gur, political correspondent for The Times of Israel moderated the panel, which included numerous politicians: Yochai Zeid from Yesh Atid, Ashley Perry from Yisrael Beiteinu, Uri Bank from Bayet HaYehudi, Yehuda Glick from Likud and Gabe Sasson from Avoda.

 

The Tel Aviv panel, also moderated by Haviv Retig Gur, featured journalists: managing editor of Israel Hayom, Barney Breen-Portney; Israel Correspondent for JTA, Ben Sales; Knesset reporter for The Jerusalem Post, Lahav Harkov; correspondent for i24 News, Yael Wissner-Level; and editor of Mishpacha Magazine, Binyamin Rose.
