This November 13th to the 15th at the Washington Hilton, next to our Washington DC B&B, will be the Jewish Federation of North America General Assembly. This Jewish Federation of North America General Assembly convention brings together volunteer and professional leaders from Federations across North America, as well as many in business of Jewish philanthropy from across the world. So as you can imagine, this gathering has a lot of momentum behind it as it is called together to bring about change and inspiration within these communities. This year, The General Assembly will explore how Federations help shape meaningful and purposeful Jewish lives. In essence, this conference will be doing extraordinary groundwork to make these Federations even stronger. This gathering will also focus on how movement has forged a course that even today still continues to impact millions of Jewish lives in a positive way on every continent.
