Leaders in the Jewish community are urging philanthropists who support Israel and those who stand with Israel to “unmute themselves” and champion a bright, prosperous future for the land and its people at Jewish National Fund-USA’s 2022 National Conference in Boston—the largest and most prominent pro-Israel conference taking place this year.

On November 4-6, 2022, well over one thousand Jewish activists, community leaders, and people who care deeply about the security and well-being of Israel and ensuring a stronger Israel for future generations will gather for a riveting weekend with the leading nonprofit for Israel that will feature Zionist content, incredible keynote speeches, panel discussions, and celebrations of the Jewish homeland with supporters from coast to coast.

The conference will also feature Jewish National Fund-USA’s affiliates in Israel, as well as members of the organization’s Special in Uniform Band. Often referred to as a truly life-changing program, Special in Uniform integrates young adults with cognitive disabilities into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)—which in turn enables them to enter the workforce following their service. The Special in Uniform Music Inclusion Program and band was created at the height of the pandemic and is now gaining international attention. More than just a pastime for its performers, people with disabilities are now empowered to participate in the legendary music tradition of the IDF, where they can develop and share their musical talent with the world.


“Supporting and engaging with Israel is more than just about policies and politics,” said National Conference co-chairs Risa Aronson and Michael Blank. “If you care about Israel, if you love Israel, if you are passionate about ensuring Israel is stronger and more resilient for future generations to come, look no further. Join us at our National Conference to connect with Israel in a way you’ve never experienced before and learn how you can make our homeland a better place for all its residents.”
