What started as an English-language debate about the upcoming Israeli elections turned into something resembling an English version of Israeli C-SPAN. The debate took place at the Great Synagogue in Jerusalem and featured representatives of the major parties: Yuli Edelstein (Likud/Beitenu), Naftali Bennett / Jeremy Gimpel (Bayit HaYehudi), Dov Lipan (Yesh Atid), Aryeh Eldad (Otzma Yisrael), Dr. Laura Wharton (Meretz), Isaac Herzog (Labor), Alon Tal (Hatnua), and Menachem Shemtov (Shas). The event closed with an eventful question and answer session in front of the aron kodesh of the iconic shul.
