Israel Ideas Festival

October 25 – October 27, 2021
Tel Aviv

To celebrate the end of the pandemic and the resumption of travel, JFN is holding a special live event in Israel, October 25 – 27.

Save the date: The Israel Ideas Festival will be a three-day gathering focusing on the core issues and challenges of the Jewish World, exploring the long-term implications of COVID and how they are transforming the world, and discussing the new opportunities that are emerging for Israel in light of the Abraham Accords.

The Festival will include a variety of thought-provoking panels from high-level speakers, deep-dive explorations of funding fields planned by JFN members, a variety of social and networking events, daylong tours themed on exciting issues, and many other events.

The Israel Ideas Festival will be future-oriented, looking at trends in major fields such as education or Israel/Diaspora relations and creating thoughtful, challenging discussions around them. Projected to attract 500 registrants — half Israeli and half from North America and overseas — this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to come together as a global community after this extended time apart.

More details and registration info coming soon.
