The former (and maybe future) prime minister’s corruption trial has been the most significant political and legal development Israel has faced in recent years, and has forced the country into a governing crisis with five elections in three years and no end in sight. But what is this trial really about, why was it born, and how can we expect it to end? Join a five-session lecture series on the subject everyone in Israel is talking about with Israeli journalist Amir Tibon. Understand what each of the ‘Netanyahu cases’ is about, what is his defense line, where things stand today, and what it all means for Israeli democracy and society.
Amir Tibon is a senior editor and writer at Haaretz newspaper. From 2016 to 2020 he was the paper’s Washington correspondent, covering the White House, Congress and the U.S. Jewish community. Amir’s writing on Israel and the Middle East has appeared in The Atlantic, the New Yorker, Foreign Affairs and other leading U.S. publications.
Five sessions via Zoom, running from October 23 – November 20.
