An English speaking podcast about the Israeli elections. In 60-60, an Olah Hadasha and her Israeli partner interview Israeli political activists representing different parties, in an effort to make sense of the unstable electoral scenario, and decide who to vote for.

We hope this journey will help the listeners (and creators) to understand the tense Israeli dynamics better, and to make the most honest and thoughtful decision regarding their vote. Moreover, if we also get to re-engage those who lost their faith in the democratic system, that is a civic duty win.

60-60 is produced and edited by Vanina Pikholc and Noy Carmel.

    "The divisions within Israeli society are actually more dangerous than Iran": Teddy Fischer

    "The divisions within Israeli society are actually more dangerous than Iran": Teddy Fischer

    Hamachane Hamamlachti, headed by Benny Guntz and Gidon Saar, is promoting itself as the only party that can bridge between the pro Bibi and the anti Bibi camps. In this episode, we interview Teddy Fischer, a US-born engineer and an activist for the party. Teddy shares with us what made him shift from Yesh Atid to this party, what does he learn from these five rounds of elections, how it happened that the Israeli voters are getting closer to the right, and why he sees the event which brought Guntz the most criticism from his voters, as one in which he did us a favor and ‘took one for the team.’

    "It's not a secular or a religious Israel, it's one in which everyone can live together": Alma Ehrlich

    "It's not a secular or a religious Israel, it's one in which everyone can live together": Alma Ehrlich

    Alma Ehrlich is the head of the Avoda student group at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. As a 22 years old activist, this will be her fifth election voting. Almah shares with us what keeps her in Israel when her friends are moving to Berlin. She analyzes how the lack of economic security changed Israeli society at its core, and she tells why she believe that even though Avoda currently has only 7 seats in the Knesset, it can still find its way to lead the Israeli government once more.

    "The home of the Jewish people often becomes the hardest place for people to be Jewish": Stephen Rubin

    "The home of the Jewish people often becomes the hardest place for people to be Jewish": Stephen Rubin

    Stephen Rubin made aliyah from the US and joined Avoda as an activist. Then, he discovered that the party that represents him the best as an Israeli is Avigdor Liberman’s party, Israel Beytenu. In this episode, he shares why the Israeli public doesn’t know what the right stands for, how Israel Beytenu offers to improve the life of ultra-orthodox people more than any Haredi party, and which discussions our country needs to have instead of these ongoing elections.

    "Peace is a basic human right": Shanna Orlik

    On our third episode, we talk with Shanna, a Meretz activist, and an Olah from France. Shanna has been an activist since childhood. She shares with us how making Aliyah changed her perception of Israel and the conflict, what Israel can learn from the evolution of the French electoral system, and why, even though many Israeli citizens vote for parties from the other edge of the political spectrum, if they have only read what Meretz actually promotes for Israeli society, she believes all of them would vote Meretz.
