Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, opposition leader Isaac Herzog, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai are slated this week to address Jewish leaders from North America and around the world who are gathered in Tel Aviv to discuss “the most pressing issues facing Israel and the Jewish world,” according to the Jewish Agency.

The gathering, one of three yearly meetings of the organization’s international board of governors, will focus on, among other issues, pluralism, aliya, delegitimization, efforts to strengthen Jewish identity in the Diaspora and “projects aimed at strengthening all segments of Israeli society,” the group announced in a statement.

Former American ambassador Stuart Eizenstat is to present the Jewish People Policy Institute’s annual assessment of the state of the Jewish world at the event, which is to feature a special session marking a quarter- century of Soviet immigration to Israel and a special briefing on communities at risk.

At the same time, a delegation of some 25 European-Jewish representatives are expected to be in Israel on a mission organized by the Tel Aviv-based Israeli Jewish Congress and to meet with both senior government representatives as well as the heads of the Jewish Federations of North America in one of its semiregular “trilateral dialogues.”

The group is also to meet with the Immigration Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee on Tuesday for a hearing on anti-Semitism and the delegitimization of Israel in Europe.
