  •  JFN Israel Conference

JFN Israel Conference

We had the privilege to participate in the JFN Israel Conference - an exceptional event, both in its importance and relevance, and in the fascinating content it brought with it. We were impressed by the significant presence of over 600 Israelis and Americans, who came together despite the complex security situation to support, strengthen, and assist Israeli society even in these challenging times. Over the four-day conference, we engaged in meetings on various topics, such as the use of artificial intelligence in education, mental health during times of war, gender in the modern world, and more. Above all, at the conference, we came to understand alongside our colleagues worldwide that the ability to tell our story is no longer a privilege but a national mission. Alongside the extensive learning during these days, as an Israeli philanthropic foundation operating regularly and especially since the outbreak of the conflict, we contributed our part in numerous discussions and shared our perspective in various areas. Inbar, the foundation's CEO, represented us at the partnerships table, on the giving panel with a gender lens, and especially in her closing speech in the plenary, where she spoke about the place of the next generation in philanthropy and in the country and the responsibility placed on its shoulders. We thank JFN Israel for an important and enriching conference, and of course to all the participants who made these days particularly effective, and we hope for better and quieter days ahead."
