Challenges and Opportunities in Israel and the Middle East

Receive the latest update on the #IsraelFires firsthand at JNF’s Annual New England Breakfast for Israel from new speakers, Danny Atar, World Chairman of Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, and Lieutenant General Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon, former Chief-of-Staff of the Israel Defense Forces

Daniel Atar began his tenure as World Chairman of Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael in October 2015. Prior to his appointment, he was a Member of the Knesset representing the Zionist Union party. Atar served five-terms as Mayor of the Gilboa Regional Council, and has been the recipient of numerous honors for his social work, including the 2011 Bridges of the World for Social Responsibility Award, and the 2013 Eugen Kogon Prize for Democracy in Action. A dedicated public servant for most of his professional career, Atar has held several posts in the Israeli civil institutions, including Chairman of Agricultural Lobby, a member of the Lobby for the Development of the Negev, and Chairman of the Subcommittee for Examining Planning and Environmental Issues of the Haifa Bay.

Lieutenant General Moshe "Bogie" Ya'alon is an Israeli politician and former Chief-of-Staff of the Israel Defense Forces. From 2009 until earlier this year, Ya’alon represented the Israeli people as a member of Knesset, serving as Vice Prime minister, Minister of Strategic Affairs and as the Minister of Defense from 2013-2016. Today, Ya’alon is working to develop the future leadership in Israel in view of the challenges and opportunities it faces.
