The most festive aspect of this year’s “Facing Tomorrow” conference – the fifth in the Presidential Conference series – was the celebration of President Shimon Peres’s 90th birthday on Tuesday night at the Jerusalem International Convention Center. In attendance were past and present world leaders, international scholars, social activists, poets, scientists, artists, clergy, entrepreneurs, economists, industrialists and philanthropists.
The real business of the conference starts Wednesday morning with a plenary session on “Leadership that Makes a Difference,” moderated by Channel 2’s Dana Weiss, with the participation of Peres, Quartet Middle East envoy Tony Blair, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who previously served as the White House chief of staff under US President Barack Obama and was a key member of the Clinton administration.
