In the fallout of Israel’s election, Donniel Hartman, Yossi Klein Halevi, and Elana Stein Hain navigate the strangeness of this moment for many in the liberal Jewish camp who are experiencing it as a moment of mourning.

Is it possible to build bridges with extremists, and is it possible to separate peoples’ ideologies from the candidates they support?
