Israel Policy Forum has announced its 2020 cohort of Charles Bronfman IPF Atid Conveners. This group of young professional leaders will receive training on pragmatic policy and modeling informed discourse in order to make them sharper analysts and more confident champions of a sustainable two-state solution.
This year’s Charles Bronfman Conveners were selected via a rigorous application process and represent a diverse group of academics, entrepreneurs, lawyers, writers, Jewish communal leaders, and policy professionals. Many have strong connections with major North American Jewish community institutions, including ADL, the American Jewish Committee, Hillel, IsraAID, Jewish Community Relations Councils, and Jewish Federations of North America.

As with previous cohorts, this year’s Conveners will meet with current and former senior government officials and top policy analysts from the US and the region, as well as American Jewish community leaders. They will also participate in professional and leadership development workshops.
Upon completion of the program’s signature summit, Conveners will each develop their own projects. These initiatives bring the lessons Conveners learned home, building support for a viable two-state solution and a more nuanced dialogue on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in their respective communities.
Now in its third year, the IPF Atid Charles Bronfman Conveners program empowers emerging Jewish community and policy leaders by equipping them with the resources to advance Israel Policy Forum’s vision of a Jewish, democratic, and secure Israel. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s summit will take place virtually, with ongoing opportunities for Conveners to engage with one another remotely.
IPF Atid, the young professionals network of Israel Policy Forum, has chapters in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Boston. Israel Policy Forum, a non-partisan US organization founded in 1993, supports a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, consistent with Israel’s security and long-term future as a Jewish and democratic state.
