Speakers include former Israeli lawmaker Rabbi Yehuda Glick, OurCrowd CEO Jonathan Medved and Rabbi Daniel Lapin.

Calev Myers, ARISE founder, said the theme was chosen based on a survey they took of past participants who want to hear about Hebrew principles and Jewish thought for success in business.

“The reason that the economy of Israel and also Jewish communities in places around the world are sometimes disproportionately successful in business isn’t because Jewish people have higher IQs on average than other people around the world,” Myers said. “It’s because the Jewish people have been implementing principles of Hebrew thought, Jewish wisdom taken mostly from the Torah and ancient writings and implementing them in their lives in a way that causes them to succeed in business.” 

ARISE was founded three years ago with the goal of connecting businesspeople from around the world – the majority of whom are Evangelical Christians – to the Israeli marketplace. The summit is designed to match make CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors from around the world with business opportunities in Israel.

According to the ARISE website, the summit has connected more than 2,000 businessmen and women and entrepreneurs from 53 nations.
