Prominent Jewish Leaders in LA to Discuss ‘Israeliness’ on Sept. 6
Israeliness: A strategic asset for the Jewish people
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. — Next week, the Israeli-American Council (IAC) will host a panel discussion between three prominent Jewish leaders about the new role of the Israeli-Americans in American Jewish life, exploring how Israeli-Americans and their unique culture of “Israeliness” can be leveraged to strengthen the Jewish community. IAC Chairman Adam Milstein, Tribe Media/Jewish Journal President David Suissa, and Rabbi Ed
Feinstein will take part in a panel discussion on Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. at the IAC Shepher Center in Woodland Hills.
“In the last decade, the Israeli-American community have been organized and mobilized in unprecedented ways through the work of the Israeli-American Council. Our unique culture – which we often describe as “Israeliness” – has the potential to be a game-changer in advancing solutions to a range of challenges facing the Jewish people– from engaging the next generation in Jewish life, to fighting anti-Semitism and BDS, to bridging gaps
within the American Jewish community, and between America and Israel,” said Adam Milstein.
“I’m thrilled to join two great thinkers and leaders in Los Angeles to engage our community in dialogue about how Israeli-Americans – and Israeliness – can strengthen the Jewish future,” Milstein added. “The event raises the curtain on the kinds of conversations that the IAC will be convening at our national conference in Washington, DC from November 3-6.”
The event follows a period of rapid growth for the IAC. In the past year: the IAC has opened five new chapters across the country, its signature programs have grown significantly in size and reach, and the its partners organization, the Israeli-American Coalition for Action, has spurred the passage of state-level anti-BDS bills, brought together numerous memorandums of understanding, and is making an impact on Capitol Hill.
This event is free for IAC Supporters and those registered to attend the IAC National Conference. The general public can buy pre-sale tickets for $10 at israeliamerican.org/israeliness, or pay $15 at the door.
