Protecting Truth During Tension

As the Israeli-Palestinian conflict develops and the rise of hate crimes persists, TML is on the ground in the Middle East and beyond writing stories that readers like you and other media outlets rely on. To ensure that you have immediate access to unbiased, fact-based reporting, it is crucial that TML has the resources to disseminate these stories in real-time. Please help us protect the truth during these critical times by making a donation today.

Between 2015 and 2019 she was opposition coordinator (chief whip) when HaMachane HaTzioni / Zionist Union led the opposition. MK Michaeli has successfully spearheaded legislation to support those with substantial debts to Hotza’a-LaPoal, Israel’s debt collection agency, workers and members of the LBGTQ Community. MK Michaeli is consistently highly ranked among legislators for her voting attendance and socially oriented voting.

MK Michaeli’s political and parliamentary interests extend over many issues and sectors. For over 20 years she has been involved in feminist activism, seeking to promote women’s equality and opportunity. Other interests include socio-economic affairs, gender equality, religion and state, LBGTQ rights, labor rights and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. In the Knesset, she heads lobby groups for the LGBTQ community, against gambling, for animal rights, for environmental-social affairs, for pluralistic Judaism, for Haredi Women, for regional cooperation, for resolving the Israeli-Arab Conflict and for secular affairs. In 1997, MK Michaeli founded “Ezrat Nashim”, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide support for victims of sexual assault. She is a member of the executive committee of the Israel Peace Initiative, a member of the management board of the Israel Women’s Network.

Prior to her election, MK Michaeli was a senior journalist at Haaretz newspaper, regularly publishing op-eds and interviews.

Who you wanna party with this election?

As you all know, the Tel Aviv International Salon hosts the leaders of Israeli political parties each election cycle speaking in English, but that isn’t enough.

As non-partisan honest brokers we also source hundreds of Olim volunteers for the parties’ election headquarters. These are great access points for Olim to enter politics and helps to raise our community’s voice across the political spectrum. We have gotten thousands of Olim engaged over a decade of work with Israeli politics, but we still have a lot more work to do.

Our community is 70,000 strong and growing every day, so please email us at and let us know inside which party you would like to lend a helping hand.

About Our Partner: The Jerusalem Post

The Jerusalem Post is Israel’s most-widely read English newspaper.

About Our Organization: Tel Aviv International Salon

Leading Ideas, Leading Israel

ELECTIONS NOTICE: The Salons are a politically unaffiliated, honest-broker organization and as such we do not support any candidate or political party. We are proud to have a long tradition of hosting the leading candidates from all sides of the political spectrum during local and national elections to speak, debate and discuss the important issues that our entire community cares about. Specifically, we have always invited every major candidate for Prime Minister to have a stage speaking to Olim and the international community in Tel Aviv. Please take to heart that no matter whom you support, don’t forget to vote March 23rd!

The Tel Aviv International Salon is the largest speakers forum in Israel. Our nonprofit organization was established in 2009 to provide a challenging, thought-provoking and intellectual discussion non-partisan platform for the young adult Tel Aviv International and Sabra community. There is an increasing number of motivated young professionals who are choosing to make Tel Aviv their home. The Salon provides this community a unique forum to learn about, debate and discuss Israeli, Jewish and world politics, history, media, economics, social, cultural and environmental issues with a diverse range of engaging international decision-makers and the leading influencers on our society.




The Salons are generously supported by the Am Yisrael Foundation
