This is a unique opportunity to meet one of the most important Zionist leaders of our times.
Dr. Yizhar Hess is the Vice Chairman of the World Zionist Organization. He is a regular contributor to the Israeli press on the subjects of religion and state and is the co-editor of the book, Questions About God, published by Ma’ariv. Between 2007-2020 Yizhar served as the Executive Director of the Masorti Movement in Israel—part of the worldwide Conservative Movement dedicated to a traditional, egalitarian, and pluralistic vision of Israel and Judaism. Yizhar represented the Masorti Movement in the negotiations with the Israeli government regarding egalitarian prayer at the Kotel, and he is one of the leading voices in Israel promoting Jewish pluralism.
