What the heck is happening with Israeli elections? We’re about to answer all your questions ahead of the November 1 Israeli elections.

The Times of Israel Community is proud to present a new limited series podcast, Paralyzed Nation: How Israel’s dysfunctional electoral system still can be fixed. Our political analysts and reporters will address the most burning issues facing the Israeli electorate today.

We’ll discuss what led Israel to this repeated electoral stalemate, the shrinking Left, the rising far Right, and electoral reforms that have been proposed to avoid this situation.

Paralyzed Nation panelists include:

🎙 David Horovitz, Founding Editor
🎙  Haviv Rettig Gur, Senior Analyst
🎙 Tal Schneider, Political Correspondent
🎙 Carrie Keller-Lynn, Political Correspondent
🎙 Jeremy Sharon, Settlements Reporter

Concerned readers’ questions are the main motivation for this podcast. If you, our podcast listeners and Community members, have any questions about Israel’s electoral system that you’d like answered by our experts, please send a voice memo by email to, and we’ll make every effort to include it in the show.
