The parties and the players,
issues and opinions,
winners and losers. 
What's on Israel's agenda?
What do the parties stand for? 
Who's who? 
Understand Israel's general elections 2015.

Israel Elections 2015, Israel Seminars' interactive discussion program, maps out, clarifies and distinguishes between the platforms of the major political parties and players participating in the Israeli general elections 2015.

Using advanced interactive techniques and the most up to date information we will look at how the leaders of Israel envision their alternative futures for our Jewish state.

Israel Elections 2015 examines the Israeli electoral system. Find out the differences between a party, faction and list; discuss the electoral threshold and how minor parties holding the balance of power exert undue influence over major policy decisions.

Experience the negotiations essential to building a coalition required by every single government since Israel’s establishment in 1948.

The program grants its participants a deeper appreciation of the system, parties and players. Israel Seminars, with the latest developments and analysis direct from Israel, we will look at the coalition-forming process, discuss your opinions and answer your questions.

Israel Seminars provides an indispensable, comprehensive guide to
Israel's general elections 2015.

No prior knowledge required.

Israel Seminars is an independent educational initiative with no political agenda.
