“There is no better way to enrich yourself than to see the facts on the ground.” 

This is how Julien Lederman, volunteer and Chair of IPF Atid New York, described last year’s inaugural young professionals delegation to Israel and the West Bank.

Israel Policy Forum is now announcing and beginning to accept applications for its second annual IPF Atid Leadership Delegation, taking place July 19-26, 2020.

The fully-subsidized group of 12-15 young professionals will engage in high-level meetings and strategic planning sessions throughout Israel and the Palestinian Territories. Sessions will feature prominent leaders and analysts of Israel Policy Forum, partner organizations such as Commanders for Israel’s Security (a network of nearly 300 retired Israeli military commanders), millennial Israeli and Palestinian change-makers, and other relevant stakeholders and experts. Delegation participants will emerge with a greater understanding of the opportunities and obstacles related to Israel’s future as a Jewish, democratic, secure state.

“The trip empowered me more than ever before as a Jewish American woman,” said Alexandra Stabler, a participant on last year’s trip and current Chair of IPF Atid Los Angeles, noting the chance to “rediscover the platform to ask questions, connect with others, and strategically evaluate current and prospective policies.”

All interested young adults, ages 21-39, from North America are encouraged to apply. Visit the delegation homepage for more information and apply here.

IPF Atid is the young professionals network of the Israel Policy Forum, an organization dedicated to advancing support for a viable two-state solution. IPF Atid educates, empowers, and connects the rising generation of Jewish and foreign policy professionals in support of a Jewish, democratic, and secure Israel. IPF Atid will soon launch its newest community in Boston on February 20, joining chapters nationwide in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, DC.
