World Jewish Forum Announcement
Posted June 29, 2007
President-elect Shimon Peres’s first major decision is to convene the much-awaited for World Jewish Forum, a gathering of 250 Jewish thinkers, business-people, and others, to rally the Jewish world around new initiatives that would rejuvenate our people. Much ground-work has been prepared under the radar while we were all waiting for Katzav to disappear. Look for initiatives that include: An international Jewish peace corps, major support for Jewish education, an exploration of Jewish genius and perhaps even an adoption initiative that would boost our numbers and help fulfill mission.
