The General Assembly (GA) is the annual conference of the United Jewish Communities of North America which takes place every November in a different city in North America. Since 1998, the GA has been meeting in Israel once every five years. GA 2008 will be the third to take place in Israel. Previous GA's were a major success and it is expected that this year more than 3000 representatives from the federations and communities will attend, as well as about 1500 participants from Israel. The GA focuses on professional issues facing the UJC in general, as well as issues that concern the Jewish communities and federations in North America. In addition to fundraising matters, issues related to the Jewish people are discussed, such as Jewish identity, Jewish education, Jewish continuity and the bonds between the Jewish community in the US and the State of Israel. GA Israel 2008 The GA this year is unique in that it is taking place in Israel on the 60th anniversary of the State. This very powerful bond between the State of Israel and North American Jewry combines a long history, a common present and a future that needs to be nurtured and preserved. This fateful partnership reflects pride and successful endeavor, ongoing dialog and a fruitful give-and-take of ideas on how to deepen the connection between the Jewish State and the largest diaspora in the world. The very existence of such a conference is an expression of the special ties that have existed for the last 60 years and which reflect the activities of the UJC on behalf of the residents of the State of Israel.
