Labor candidates are opening their homes this week to the public, in a series of election events at candidates' homes.
The events begin on Monday evening, with Itzik Shmuly in Lod, Danny Attar in Gan Ner, a moshav in the North, and Hilik Bar in Jerusalem on Monday night.
The events will take place at 16 different candidates' homes in places like Mevasseret Tzion, Kochav Yair, and Baka al-Garbiya. Later this week, Yacimovich will announce the date of an event at her home in Tel Aviv.

"I live in the Baka neighborhood in Jerusalem, and invite you to spend an evening in a warm, homey atmosphere, at a personal event where you can express yourself, ask questions and get answers on a variety of subjects," Bar stated. "I am sure this will be a special opportunity for me and for you."
Shmuly said that until the election, he plans to do whatever it takes to convince the public to vote Labor, "even if it means squeezing another 20 people into my living room so I can persuade them that four more years of [Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu] is bad for Israel."
Attar invited the public to come up north to his home and hear about his plans to help kibbutzes and moshavs to strengthen the economy, and get to know him without a middle-man.
The public is invited to participate in the events, and can RSVP via the party's Facebook page, where more information will be available, or Space at each event is limited.
