Also, what's it like to go from being an ordinary private citizen, to a new
Knesset member, all in less than one years time? Tamar speaks with American born Rabbi Dov Lipman, number 17 on the Yesh Atid list, and who is now a new Knesset member. Find out how he got involved in politics, how he got into the Yesh Atid party, and how he got to be in a realistic place on the list, which landed him a seat in the Knesset! An interesting look on how one's life can suddenly change, and how one copes with these new and exciting challenges.
