With the March 28 election day closing in, Kadima launched this week a full-scale effort to court Anglo voters. The efforts began Saturday night at a campaign meeting featuring Shimon Peres, Tzipi Livni, Shaul Mofaz, Meir Sheetrit, and Tzachi Hanegbi. The speakers spoke primarily in Hebrew, but also addressed the Anglos in attendance. While the event represented Kadima's first overtures towards Israel's Anglo community, it was attended mainly by Israelis, as well as Russian and Ethiopian olim. The speeches lasted just over an hour and a half, of which approximately ten minutes were spoken in English. Many Anglos who attended the event were not olim, but rather university students studying in Israel for semester or year-long programs interested in seeing some of Israel's top politicians speak.
