Jerusalemites heard from the leading political parties in the upcoming mayoral race in an English-langauge debate last Monday. After the event, Hitorerut leader Ofer Berkovitch, "Jerusalem Will Succeed No. 2 Fleur Hassan-Nahoum and Avi Salman spoke with The Jerusalem Post about the importance of the new immigrant population and their contributions to the city.

Berkovitch was one of the only mayoral candidate to themselves attend the event
at the headquarters of the Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel, as Jerusalem Affairs Minister Ze'ev Elkin, and deputy mayors Yossi Daitch and Moshe Lion did not attend, sending other representatives or skipping the event entirely.
Salman, a candidate for mayor, spoke with the Post upon the event's conclusion.
Jerusalem's election will take place next Tuesday.
