It goes without saying that the last year+ has been... unusual. And with no precedent off which to base a course of action, we are proud to remain the facilitator of the important conversations to come.
So with the vaccine rolling out and cities slowly opening up, it begs the question: What’s next?
GA2021 will cover three key areas of Jewish life, allowing us — as a community — to determine how to move forward in a post-pandemic world. This year’s GA topics include:
Jewish security in North America and worldwide
Building and fostering civic partnerships
North America’s relationship with Israel
GA 2021 participants will review the current state of these issues and provide important input and direction for the coming year. Sessions will center on education and overcoming challenges as we discuss Jewish diversity and inclusion, philanthropy, and demographic data from the Pew Research Center 2020 survey of Jewish-American life.
We are very excited to announce that we have the ability to gather in person this year. In order to stay safe, 500 professional and lay leaders will be selected to join us in person.
For the health and well-being of all participants, we will be following COVID-19 safety protocols throughout the conference, in accordance with CDC guidelines.
Last year, in the midst of a global pandemic, the GA took place completely virtually, allowing us to reach more people than ever before. This year, we will continue to offer a virtual component in addition to our small in-person gathering. We welcome everyone interested in these conversations to join us online!
