About the Event

On May 15-16, 2022, we hosted our second annual Leadership Policy Summit, and our first in Washington, D.C. Together with our leadership, supporters, IPF Atid leaders, and Charles Bronfman Conveners, we engaged with experts, members of Congress, and other special guests on our vision for advancing a viable two-state solution in order to ensure Israel’s future as Jewish, democratic, and secure.

The Leadership Policy Summit helped bring to life our work in providing credible and constructive policy analysis and educational resources for policymakers and community leaders.

Israel Policy Forum’s work in Washington and in the Jewish community is as critical as ever, and as we continue to grow our team and increase our output, we look forward to more opportunities to work together with our community on addressing the challenges that lie ahead.
