Knesset Jeremy covers the Knesset’s legislative activity for the English speaking public. The first and only blog to cover the Knesset’s plenary sessions in English, we summarize what goes on every day in the Knesset (the Israeli parliament) from a neutral point of view. We also cover Knesset polls. The Knesset Jeremy office is on the first floor of the Knesset.
Jeremy’s Daily Knesset Blog is managed by Knesset Insider, Jeremy Man Saltan, a frequent guest on various radio programs, JewishPress.com’s in-depth Knesset correspondent and an op-ed contributor for The Times Of Israel. He can be seen throughout the week eating lunch in the Knesset cafeteria with advisors from the Knesset’s various parties. He graduated two Bar-Ilan University programs on Knesset legislative work and political campaign management and has an associates degree in political science from Liberty International University.
In addition, Jeremy is a stand-up comedian, comedy club owner, and Dale Carnegie-certified business coach. Jeremy’s previous experience includes running a commercial real estate company, counseling wayward teens, producing films, directing theater and managing a comedy club, following a colorful career in the Israel Defense Forces.
Knesset Jeremy is looking for potential volunteers to cover portions of the Knesset’s plenum and committee meetings. Internships are available. Those wishing to advertise on the site please be in touch.
