Dr. Dahlia Scheindlin is a public opinion expert and an international political and strategic consultant who will provide a critical point of view on the 2019 Israel elections. Because she currently conducts the joint Israeli-Palestinian ongoing public opinion survey together with the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, Dr. Scheindlin is uniquely positioned to share insights into this election process and the potential ripple effect on Israel’s domestic and international political relationships.

Inspired by the legacy of its extraordinary namesake, the Connie Spear Birnbaum Memorial Lecture strives to be a force for unity by bringing the brightest minds and most compelling Jewish leaders to inform and inspire us. JCRC is proud to sponsor this lecture series, which offers timely topics and speakers across the ideological spectrum, reflecting the fullness of our community’s diversity. Being open to hearing all voices – not just one’s own or those most familiar to us – is “the Connie way.” This is a significant step on a journey which begins with education and exposure, engenders understanding and respect, and hopefully, paves a path toward that ever-elusive unity and love of one Jew for the other.
