Places are filling up fast for one of the largest-ever international gatherings for Israel supporters.
Building off the momentum of Jewish National Fund-USA’s 2022 National Conference in Boston, the Global Conference for Israel is expected to double attendance and will unite thousands of philanthropists, high school and college students, and Israelis, for a weekend of unparalleled conversations, enrichment, and entertainment.
The Global Conference for Israel will take place Nov. 30 through Dec. 3, 2023, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO, with highlights set to include high-level briefings from Israeli President Isaac Herzog (invited), Ambassador Gilad Erdan, Israel’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Michael Oren, Israel’s former ambassador to the United States, and Gov. Jared Polis of Colorado.
The conference will feature an incredible lineup of presenters highlighting why it is more important than ever to stand up for the only democracy in the Middle East. Attendees can expect to hear insights from key thought leaders; explore an interactive expo featuring Jewish National Fund-USA’s unparalleled affiliates from Israel; take part in one of the largest Shabbat dinners in the world; and be transformed by riveting sessions including “Israel, A Nation of Startup People,” “You Don’t Have to be Jewish to Stand Up for Israel,” “Aliyah Through the Ages,” “Let There Be Water, Energy, and Food,” “Countering Anti-Zionism Campaigns on Campus,” and “Winning the Global Media War,” among others.
“Those who hold our Jewish homeland deep in their hearts and who are looking to nourish their souls while surrounded by thousands of peers who envision a bright and prosperous future for the land and people of Israel should not miss this conference,” said Risa Aronson, Jewish National Fund-USA’s president of the Boston Board of Directors, former Boston Women for Israel Chair, and member of the organization’s Women for Israel National Executive Board.
The conference’s entertainment will be headlined by standup comic star Alex Edelman, fresh from his summer run on Broadway. In addition, participants will witness a jaw-dropping musical performance by Jewish National Fund-USA’s Special in Uniform band. The band’s talented singers and instrumentalists are members of the life-changing initiative Special in Uniform, which empowers young people with disabilities to serve in the Israel Defense Forces and enjoy the same “rite of passage” as their peers.
The Global Conference for Israel will also feature exclusive events for young professionals ages 22-40, as well as special programming for college and high school students.
“We look forward to welcoming over 500 young philanthropists to our Global Conference for Israel, where we will have specially crafted content and discussions focused on their interests and a not-to-be-missed exclusive young professionals celebration of Israel,” said Melissa Asarch Wittenberg, Jewish National Fund-USA’s national director of JNFuture.
