Israel Resilience Party
Founded in 2018
The Israel Resilience Party was established before the 2019 elections by former IDF Chief of General Staff Benny Gantz. The goals of the party are to maintain the character of Israel as a democratic Jewish country in the vision of the Declaration of Independence, by emphasizing national investments in education, infrastructure, agriculture, rule of law, social welfare and peace & security. Shortly after its formation, the party decided to run in a joint electoral list with Telem and Yesh Atid, under the label Blue and White.
