WHAT IS NEXT?
Between 1897 and 1967 the Zionist movement accomplished all of its goals.
We liberated our national homeland from foriegn rule, we ingathered a scattered and broken people, we revived a dead language and we made the desert bloom.
Today we are faced with a new array of challenges that can only be addressed with new ideas. Old paradigms of the “right” and “left”, “religious” and “secular” are quickly becoming obsolete.
Getaway this Labor Day weekend to a beautiful retreat setting, for a unique first time ever event. Join thought leaders and Israel influencers to explore what is the NEXT step for Zionism, Israel and the Jewish People..
ZionismNEXT is part Ted Conference part spiritual retreat. Our goal is to present paradigm changing ideas from thought leaders and social movers, in Israel.
