The conference in Jerusalem symbolised the universal recognition by Israeli institutions of the existence of “Global Israeli Leadership “, which works to strengthen the connection between the State of Israel and the countries in which Israelis reside.

The Israeli President Reuven ‘Ruvi’ Rivlin welcomed at his official residence 40 of the principal leaders. The president defined the Israeli diaspora worldwide, and during the meeting said he expects the Israelis around the world to act as a bridge between the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

The conference took place over three days and dealt with a variety of relevant issues in discussions held by the leading experts in their fields. Discussions were on topics such as leadership, education, culture, strengthening the Israeli and Jewish identity among youth, community building, women’s entrepreneurship and leadership, global networking of Israelis in various communities, and more.

The aim of the conference as viewed by its organisers was to set a strategic milestone on the path in which Israeli diaspora communities are taking towards building a united front.

Melbourne-based Eitan Drori told J-Wire: “The organisation is a junction of Israel-Israeli Diaspora relations we see coming up in every country . I am Aussie Israeli who organised the conference.”
