ISRAEL NEEDS AN OVERHAUL
Not the Jewish state itself, but its image. Marketing and public affairs experts detailed cutting-edge strategies for remaking Israel's profile in the world's eyes during the session "Israel, The Brand" on Tuesday, the GA's final day.

These experts detail different approaches to improving Israel’s image, but they all agree it needs fixing and only a coordinated strategy will work. click here for more

BIG IDEAS
At UJC we’re tackling the major challenges, and opportunities, of our Jewish future. Our newest major initiative is Operation Promise, the $160 million supplemental fundraising effort to help feed elderly, poor Jews in the former Soviet Union, strengthen Jewish identity among young FSU Jews facing assimilation, bring the remaining 20,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel and lift the entire Ethiopian-Israel community into the mainstream with better education.

We're also helping build Jewish community at home in North America, with innovative programs like UJCweb, the federation Internet platform that's already giving more than 100 communities a robust Web presence featuring the critical email marketing tools necessary to build their online philanthropy, the fastest-growing arena in the non-profit world.
