Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will attend the Jewish Federations of North
America's (JFNA) General Assembly held in Denver between November 6th and 8th,
the Federations announced on Wednesday.
"The Jewish Federations is
honored to host Prime Minister Netanyahu at the General Assembly," said JFNA CEO
and President Jerry Silverman in a press release.
"The Jewish Federations
appreciates this important occasion and looks forward to meeting the prime
minister and discussing the future of the Jewish people with him." The General
Assembly is the annual gathering organized by JFNA, a network of loosely
affiliated Jewish fund raisers in the US and Canada. Netanyahu attended last
year's event held in New Orleans alongside US Vice President Joe Biden and
opposition leader Tzipi Livni. This year JFNA plans to showcase its newly
launched Israel Action Network, an organization set up with the Jewish Council
for Public Affairs (JCPA) aimed at battling delegitimization of Israel and
attempts to promote boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) of it.
