Once a year, Jewish leaders across North America gather to network and study, to listen and learn, to worship, do tikkun olam projects and to consider the wide range of issues facing the Jewish community.
Several thousand strong, they are the decision-makers from communities large and small; and at the end of the gathering, they return home inspired and energized.
The gathering is the Jewish Federations of North America’s General Assembly (GA). This year, it will be held in Denver, CO, from November 6-8, and you are invited to attend. You can even come early for a pre-convention Shabbaton.
Through a series of plenary and break-out sessions, delegates will explore a wide range of topics, including creating inclusive communities, engaging volunteers – young and old, using social media and understanding what’s happening in Israel and throughout the Middle East, including the ramifications of the Arab Spring.
They will look at Jewish culture, dealing with anti-Israel activists both on campus and off, addressing community financial issues and strategic leadership.
There are special tracks for Hillel students and young adults, too.
