Federation Insider: The 2015 Israeli Election for Prime Minister

We applaud our friends and family in Israel on their successful election this past Tuesday. Israel is the one country in the Middle East with fully free elections, where Jews, Arabs, Druze, Christians, Muslims can vote their conscience and speak their minds. With participation above 75% of all eligible voters – more than 5.8 million citizens – there is a lot the rest of the world can learn from this vibrant and rich democracy…trying to reflect and embody liberal values in a rough neighborhood.
