The last year has seen dramatic events with far-reaching consequences for the Jewish community, from the COVID-19 pandemic to the recent and drastic rise in physical and verbal acts of antisemitism.

It is time for the leadership of our community to build our collective response to ensure the health, safety, and continued wellbeing of the Jewish people. We are ready to answer the question: What’s next?

AT THE 2021 GENERAL ASSEMBLY, LEADERS OF THE JEWISH COMMUNITY WILL SET THE COURSE FOR THE YEAR AHEAD.

LET’S PLAN AND ACT TOGETHER

Collaboration and collective action are key to the success of the Jewish community. Which is why we work very closely with partner organizations to actively address the issues facing Jews today.

At this year’s GA, we will explore several important areas of Jewish life so that we, as a community, can determine how best to move forward.

This year’s GA topics include:

GA 2021 participants will review the current state of these issues and provide important input and direction for the coming year. We will consider pressing current events, but also look at long-term trends of Jewish equity, diversity and inclusion, philanthropy, and the demographic data from the Pew Research Center 2020 survey of Jewish-American life. Both small group discussions and full plenaries will focus on education and overcoming challenges.

GA2021:

Hybrid Model

To ensure we are continuing to safely chart the path for Jewish communities to flourish, this year’s GA will be held as a hybrid in-person/remote conference.

in-person attendees

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.

virtual offerings

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!
