Once a year, Jewish communal leaders from all over the world gather together at the Jewish Federation of North America’s General Assembly (GA). The GA inspires and engages, tackles the most critical issues of the day, and showcases the best of the Federation movement. This year, this amazing conference will take place in Jerusalem to celebrate Israel’s 65th birthday and the unmatched partnership between the Federations and the State of Israel.
You are invited to join us in Israel from November 7-15, 2013 for a Pittsburgh Mission to Israel that will start with Shabbat in Jerusalem, continue with the GA, and culminate with an action-packed visit to our Partnership2Gether city and region, Karmiel and Misgav.
The exclusive, week-long Mission will include:
Access to the most prominent leaders of Jewish thought in the world! Last year’s program included sessions with Elie Weisel & Natan Sharansky; Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren; Senior Political Analyst for CNN David Gergen; Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism; Shelly Yacimovich, leader of Israel's Labor Party; Rabbi Heather Borshof, chaplain with the US Army; and more!
A visit to Pittsburgh’s Partnership2Gether city and region of Karmiel and Misgav for special VIP opportunities and celebrations.
