This is a wonderful opportunity for American Jewish leaders to hear firsthand about the burning issues surrounding the State of Israel and world Jewry from senior journalists and Israeli political and military leaders. This conference is one of the most significant and largest gatherings of Israeli and American decision and policy makers.
