World Council of Israelis Abroad gets down to business

The World Council of Israelis Abroad held its first-ever conference in Toronto this month, under the theme “Building Bridges to World Jewry and the State of Israel.”

The three-day meeting was sponsored by the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, the Jewish Agency for Israel, Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs and the Mishelanu Organization for Israelis Abroad.

… The conference was organized around three main pillars: building an Israeli community abroad, the relationship between the local Israeli and Jewish communities, and the relationship between the State of Israel and Israelis abroad.
