UPDATE: DOV KHENIN’S NIGHT AT CITYTREE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 at 9 pm.
Khenin is currently a Knesset Member representing Hadash, a joint Jewish-Arab Communist party. He speaks often in Tel Aviv on issues relating to the environment and the income gaps between Israel’s poorest and wealthiest groups.
He is running for mayor on the “Ir Lekulanu” (City For All) party ticket against the incumbent Ron Huldai. His platform includes renovating Tel Aviv’s public transportation, reducing income gaps, solving the parking crisis and improving education.
The PR kit for his candidacy has been creative. The ad above is for the Dov T-shirt, which you can buy at Colortouch, 03-6293031, on Ibn Gvirol at the Landon mall, near the Tzavta Club and McDonalds. Tell them you want the Dov Khenin shirt; it costs 20 shekels.
(This is the graffiti stencil being circulated so activists can spraypaint the city walls: (“Dov Khenin Wants You at the Ballot 11.11”))
