There is a time when thousands of Jews from across North America gather in one place to be inspired, to engage with current and emerging leaders, to listen and learn, and to tackle the critical issues facing our community today.
They are young, getting involved for the first time; they are Hillel students connecting with students from other campuses; and they are veterans who have devoted a lifetime to serving the Jewish community. They are Reform and Orthodox, Conservative and Humanistic, Reconstructionist and unaffiliated.
They share a passion for the Jewish community and are eager to stand up and be counted. They know they will hear from American and Israeli political, social and educational leaders.
This year, the place is Denver, CO. The dates are November 6-8. The gathering is the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America. And you are invited to participate.
The program will include opportunities to participate in leadership training programs and hands-on tikkun olam (the repair of the world) projects; plenary sessions and open forums that explore many aspects of Jewish life; break out sessions during which smaller groups focus on specific areas of interest from Israel to the issues Jewish communities deal with daily; and much more.
Additional information and early bird registration, available only until September 2, can be found online at www.generalssembly.org; or contact Jewish Community of Louisville President and CEO Stu Silberman, 459-0660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
