The Israel Conference is the first of its kind on Harvard’s campus. It was created by a group of Israeli students, who wanted to bring the Israeli spirit to campus the way they see it—as that of a vibrant, innovative and eternally optimistic state.
The conference focuses on a collection of Israeli individuals, projects and organizations active at the forefront of diverse fields. The discussions will highlight innovations in technology, medicine, humanitarian aid, culture, and, most importantly, peace. The speakers selected for the conference represent a wide variety of backgrounds, religions, cultures and industries; the speaker’s list includes current Governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer, former chief White House adviser on Middle East policy Dennis Ross, and many other individuals who have devoted their lives to innovation.
