ABOUT THE GA

The GA convenes thousands of volunteer and professional leaders from Federations across North America, along with those in the business of Jewish philanthropy from around the world.

This premier annual conference will take you on a journey to explore how Federations help shape purposeful Jewish communities. And how our movement has forged a course that continues to touch millions of lives on every continent. Explore your Jewish journey at the 2016 General Assembly.

Program Highlights


Federations touch more Jewish lives than any organization on the planet. We've traveled the world to bring you compelling examples of your work from every corner of the globe. See the stories of the lives you've changed in places you didn't even know we reached.


In a year full of constant media coverage and endless political rhetoric, it's time to take stock and discuss the results. Featuring acclaimed host of NBC's Meet the Press, Chuck Todd, this conversation can only be found on stage at the GA!

Cultural and creative experiences have long been building blocks for Jewish community. Choose from six Jewish journey-themed sessions, each providing a cultural lens through which we create and nourish Jewish community and Jewish journeys.
