Vulnerable communities worldwide - and those who support them - face unprecedented challenges.

Join the premier Jewish convening on global responsibility to meet, learn, and strategize with fellow champions of global development - practitioners, funders, communal leaders, rabbis, and service program alumni - as we explore the pressing issues of our time.

At a time of conflicting priorities,  how can the Jewish community step up to address global  challenges?

With reduced funding and travel, how can Jewish/Israeli organizations continue serving communities in the developing world?

How can we build back better and create sustainable and ethical programs for the future?
