The Israeli Conservatism Conference
Thursday, May 26, 2022
International Convention Center, Jerusalem
The Most Important Intellectual Conference in Israel is Back!
Lead the Way to a Stronger, Freer, and Prosperous Jewish State
Israel’s dynamic conservative movement is growing quickly, and bringing fresh questions and ideas to the national conversation. Come learn why national security depends on free markets; debate how to resolve tensions between Israel’s Jewish and democratic aspects; understand how a powerful legal system is affecting Israeli economic, political, and social issues; and celebrate why the State of Israel is nevertheless the best place to live.
Put down your books, log off of social media, and join us at the conference for an unforgettable experience – a day of community and discussions about our Israeli future.
