Throughout the journey, we'll gain deep insights into the multifaceted tapestry of Israel, exploring its diverse population, which encompasses new immigrants from Ethiopia and Ukraine, Israeli Arabs, Israeli Jews, Palestinians, settlers in the West Bank, and more.


Accompanied by knowledgeable speakers, we'll delve into key topics that shape Israel's trajectory, such as Jewish-Arab relations within and beyond Israel's borders, issues of pluralism and religion, and the ongoing judicial reform and competing visions for the country's future.


Additionally, we'll connect with individuals whose lives have been positively impacted by the vital role that Jewish Federations play in strengthening Israel and forging connections between Israel and North American Jewish Communities.
