Gil Hoffman starts a series on Inside Israel Today in which listeners will get to meet new candidates for Knesset from across the political spectrum. His first guest in the series is Yesh Atid candidate Tehila Friedman, a research fellow at the moderate religious Zionist Hartman Institute and a program director at Shaharit, a think tank promoting a new social partnership between all segments of Israeli society. She is the outgoing chair of Ne’emanei Torah va’Avodah, a modern Orthodox movement promoting pluralism and democracy and a founding board member of the Yerushalmit Movement, a non-profit promoting a pluralistic Jerusalem. Friedman explains how she intends to advance those ideals in the Knesset. She also ambitiously vows to also represent Diaspora Jews from around the world as an MK.
