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.
