This year’s Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly (GA) in Washington, D.C. will take participants on a journey along with hundreds of Jewish community members and professionals from around the world. The conference, being held from Sunday through Tuesday Nov. 13 to 15, will explore how the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, along with all Jewish Federations, helps shape Jewish lives; look at the election and its impact; and introduce attendees to Jews from every continent whose lives have been transformed by the generosity of the North American Jewish community. Dayna Finkelstein and Naomi Prusky are chairing Greater Philadelphia’s GA delegation.
Participants can pick their own paths for the GA to ensure the experience enhances their personal journeys. This year’s GA highlights will include:
An outstanding lineup of speakers including Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose path to the Supreme Court started at Jewish summer camp, and Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, who attended Christian schools before becoming a Jewish icon.
More than 50 Fedovation case studies from Jewish Federations throughout North America that look at best practices that apply to every facet of the Jewish Federations’ work.
Donor affinity group experiences, including networking events and intimate meet-and-greets with world leaders.
Roundtables about the impact of the election and the global geopolitical landscape, and what they mean for the Jewish community now and in the future.
Around the World with Jewish Federation — a video series sharing inspirational stories that demonstrate the importance of Jewish Federations’ work.
Breakout sessions, many of which will focus on fundraising trends and Jewish education and engagement.
Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia staff, leaders and new and seasoned volunteers, as well as Jewish communal professionals from partner organizations, are all welcome to attend. Participants can stay for all three days of the conference, or choose the one-day option on Nov. 14. To register or for more information, visit generalassembly.org.
