The Jerusalem Post, in
conjunction with iVoteIsrael and the Association of Americans and
Canadians in Israel (AACI), is set to sponsor a series of debates on the
upcoming US election between the Republicans Abroad Israel (RAI) and
the Democrats Abroad Israel (DAI).
According to Elie Pieprz,
National Director of iVoteIsrael,“With the heightened interest in the US
elections, American citizens living in Israel have been seeking forums
where they can learn more about the issues and dynamics of the US
election." The debates, therefore, will provide an "intimate examination
of the race,” he explained.
The debates were scheduled for Sunday,
September 23 in Beersheba and Monday, September 24 in Ra'anana, as well
as, Thursday, October 18 in Haifa and Sunday, October 28 in Jerusalem.
