Dear Friends:

We are writing to encourage your participation in AJC Global Forum 2023 which, in honor of Israel's 75th anniversary, will take place in Tel Aviv June 11-14, 2023. For convenience, here is the link that includes hotel, conference registration and additional information: Global Forum 2023 FAQ.

Your presence this year is important; we live in critical times for Israel, the Jewish People and the world. AJC Global Forum is the premier global Jewish advocacy event of the year. Together with an unparalleled array of community, governmental and thought leaders, we will tackle major issues including:

  • Fighting the global resurgence of antisemitism
  • Strengthening Israel's growing relations in the Middle East
  • Deepening relations between American Jews and Israelis
  • Defending democratic values

A few words about Tel Aviv. My husband Robert and I visit Tel Aviv frequently. It is one of the most exciting cities in the world, with over 2 1/2 million visitors each year. It is a diplomatic center with many foreign embassies, and the economic and technology center of Israel as well. Much of the history of Zionism is in Tel Aviv, from the period before its founding in 1909 right to the present.

Tel Aviv is also a cultural center with many museums, theaters (which provide outstanding productions in Hebrew and in English), and wonderful restaurants, many of which are kosher. It is home to the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, which has the most wonderful custom - a pre-Shabbat performance at 2:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon at the Bronfman Auditorium (Robert and I already have tickets for June 16). The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is also an extraordinary treat, not only for its collection of 20th Century European Art but also for its works of Israeli and pre-State artists. We would be happy to talk with any of you about more things to see and do in Tel Aviv.

We hope you will consider joining us in June for what is going to be an incredible experience in Tel Aviv! Again, for more information, please visit AJC Global Forum 2023.

Don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions. You can also contact Lauren Grossman, AJC Chicago's Associate Director of Advancement & Engagement, at grossmanln@ajc.org if you need further information.

With best regards,

Susan Brent Millner & Robert Millner
