The week began with a ceasefire ending the three-day violent escalation between Israel and Islamic Jihad in Gaza. Now, with the border quiet again, we ask if Israelis have already forgotten the rockets fired at them and the perceived skillful handling of this crisis by prime minister Yair Lapid, and more importantly, will they remember Gaza at all on Election Day?

Also this week, Labor party members voted to select their list of candidates for the next Knesset, and on Wednesday, Likud members did the same. Both parties saw surprises and a changing of the guard. In Likud, loyalists supporting Benjamin Netanyahu were rewarded. But what do the lists of candidates mean to the voters - will anyone support or abandon a party because of these names? And which party in Israeli history was the first to hold primaries anyway?

Each week, hosts Anshel Pfeffer and Dahlia Scheindlin discuss all the news, polls, history and party trivia you need to know for Israel's upcoming election.
