Will there be opportunities to explore Jerusalem during the GA?
On Tuesday, November 12, the GA will leave the convention center and spend the day exploring Israel, with a focus on Jerusalem.
We will travel to some of Israel’s most esteemed institutes of Jewish learning and thought to get inspired and engage in discussions with the country’s most prominent spiritual thought leaders. Then disperse throughout the Jerusalem area to explore pioneering programs led by our partners. The day culminates as we join Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat, Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky and Minister of the Economy, Religious Services, Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs MK Naftali Bennett to celebrate the bond between the Jewish people and Jerusalem, and then walk in unity from Jerusalem’s City Hall to the Old City, allowing time for personal reflection at the Kotel.
