Sarah Silverman’s Sister Is Running in Israel’s Election to Help Topple Its Right-Wing Government | Alternet

Still, for many Israelis Meretz remains a voice for the Israeli left that feels disenfranchised by an Israeli political system that has endorsed economic inequality at home and permanent occupation of the Palestinian territories. Meretz, for example, was the only Zionist party to oppose the war in Gaza over the summer.

Israel’s electoral system is organized under the principle of proportional representation, with parties submitting lists from which they will then fill their seats in Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, following the election. Meretz has recruited Rabbi Susan Silverman, the sister of American comedian Sarah Silverman, to the 20th spot on its list, which is considered an honorary spot given the party’s electoral prospects.
