This timely program will be held three days after the State of Israel holds a third national election on March 2, following two close races in which incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Benny Gantz were unable to create coalitions necessary to form the country’s next government. Dr. Nurnberger will discuss the results and implications of Israel’s unprecedented third election.

Following Dr. Nurnberger’s lecture, David Brown, Registered Representative of Israel Bonds, will present an overview of Israel Bonds and explain how they can be used to diversify one’s asset portfolio.

“Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, but its election process is somewhat foreign to Americans,” said Jess Geller, chair of the Israel Bond Committee at Congregation Beth Israel. “This is a great opportunity for Americans to understand how Israelis choose their leaders. It is also a great way for Americans to learn how Israel Bonds helps support the State of Israel, regardless of which political party is in power.”

While the event is free to attend, RSVPs by March 2 are encouraged. To RSVP or for more information, contact David Brown at or (973) 712-1404.

Congregation Beth Israel is located at 18 Shalom Way (corner of Martine Avenue), Scotch Plains, NJ.
