Jewish GA

 

The General Assembly is an annual North American Jewish conference that brings together participants from the United Jewish Communities (UJC) to discuss important and critical issues. The GA draws more than 5,000 participants each year, and includes forums and workshops, as well as speakers from politics, business, and non-profit groups.

The GA is run by the UJC, an umbrella group representing over 157 Jewish Federations and over 400 independent Jewish communities. The UJC seeks to improve the conditions of Jewish communities in North America under the banner of tikkun olam (repairing the world), charity giving, and Jewish education.

The GA also provides a platform to promote social action and advocacy. It allows for communities to speak out about issues important to them and to make a change in policies that affect them. The GA has also hosted heads of state who have come to lend support to the Jewish community.

The GA provides representatives from various communities with tools to foster a stronger Jewish identity in their communities, workshops promoting a hands-on approach, and a chance for participants to network with other representatives.
