Yachdav 2008

ROI120 is not the only gathering in Jerusalem this week of young Jewish leaders from around the world. Also here, the International Keren Hayesod Young Leadership’s Yachdav 2008 Conference.

110 young people, next-generation leaders of Keren Hayesod – United Israel Appeal from 18 countries took part in last night’s opening event.

about: The Keren Hayesod Young Leadership division is comprised of dynamic young adults from throughout the world. While many of these young leaders are in fact people of unique talent and accomplishment, what brings them together is the existential reality of their connection to Israel – the land and her people.

Keren Hayesod Young Leaders are given the opportunity to impact on the lives of contemporaries and communities at home and abroad. Through their activities and creative program initiatives they are also forging relationships and planting seeds for the future. They constitute a new generation of leaders in the Jewish world. But they are already making a significant contribution to the quality and character of Jewish life.
