I'm going to come out and say it, I'm not a big fan of conferences. They are crowded, they are often too broad in scope, and they usually involve travel and expense. That is why I am rather selective with the conferences that I chose to attend. That is also why I am attending the Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly (a.k.a. The GA) in Washington, D.C., on November 13 - 15, 2016.
Jewish Federations touch more Jewish lives than any other organizations on the planet, but more often than not, we are not afforded the opportunity to see the fruits of our communal labor. Attending the GA will bring you face to face with compelling examples of our work from every corner of the globe. You will literally be able to see the stories of the lives you've changed in places you didn't even know we reached.
The GA also affords attendees the opportunity to hear from some of the most influential and knowledgeable speakers in our world today such as, The Hon. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Chuck Todd, Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. Additionally, The GA will be taking place in Washington, DC just five days after the Presidential election. The city will surely still be electrified and many of our presenters will certainly add color and perspective to the election and what the outcome means for our community and the work of the Jewish Federation.
I hope that you will consider joining me at the 2016 GA where we - together - can take a journey to explore how Federations helps shape purposeful Jewish lives. And how the Federation movement has forged a course that continues to touch millions of Jewish lives on every continent. Join me and explore your own journey at the 2016 General Assembly.
