The Jerusalem Post will hold its annual conference on Monday, June 5, at Gotham Hall on Broadway in Manhattan, as part of celebrations of Israel at 75 and people who have helped make the country what it is today.
Diplomats, politicians, business, and thought leaders will discuss the day’s most critical issues on stage during interviews with senior Jerusalem Post editors and reporters.
Keynote speeches and interviews will be delivered by National Unity Chairman Benny Gantz, Minister of Economy and Industry Nir Barkat, US Senators Ben Cardin and James Lankford, Azeri Ambassador to the US Khazar Ibrahim, Mayors Moshe Lion (Jerusalem) and Eric Adams (New York City), and senior leaders from the US Department of Defense and US Department of State.
This year for the first time, the Post is offering two hours of “Tech Talk & Innovation,” featuring the president of the NYSE Group, Lynn Martin, start-up leaders like LinkedIn’s Chief Product Officer Tomer Cohen and Carybne founder and CEO Amir Elichai, and a special fireside chat between Israel Mapped In New York Ventures founder Guy Franklin and former Israeli model turned CEO Shlomit Malka.
