President Reuven Rivlin on Israel & Global Jewish Philanthropy

"The impact of the people sitting in this room is not only what you do—and you do a lot...—it is the fact that we and you do it together."

"Thank you all for everything you are doing, and I know how much you are doing."

Israel's President Reuven Rivlin addressed the opening ceremony of the Jewish Funders Network 2018 International Conference in Jerusalem. He discussed his vision for a "New Israeli Order" in which Israel is a true home for its major "tribes": secular Jews, Haredi Jews, National Religious Jews, and Arabs. He also discussed the ways in which philanthropists can be pioneers in Israel's progress, and praised the flourishing and evolving partnership between Israel and Jewish funders worldwide.
