The Jewish Federations of North America's General Assembly (GA) is the premier annual North American Jewish communal event, attracting Federation volunteer leaders and professionals, the leadership of our partner organizations and a range of national Jewish organizations.
The GA inspires and engages current and emerging Jewish leaders, tackles the most critical issues of the day, and showcases the best of the Federation movement. This year, the event will be held in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Jewish Federations have been meeting at General Assemblies for over 80 years to network, learn from each other and interface with world leaders. The program features themes that are timely and highly relevant to the Jewish community. Sessions include how to raise money in a challenging economy to preserve lifesaving programs, how to better use digital media to connect with communities and how to bring a spirit of innovation to philanthropy.
The 2012 GA was broadcast Live on JLTV November 11-13 and included speakers such as Michael Oren, ambassador of Israel to the United States, David Gergen, senior political analyst for CNN, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism, Shelly Yacimovich, leader of Israel's Labor Party, Rabbi Heather Borshof, chaplain with the US Army and more.
