The Israeli Conservatism Conference

Big ideas and great company at the annual gathering of the Israeli conservative movement

Building Community

While Israel finds itself among the most conservative societies in the Western world, there are few manifestations of conservatism in its intellectual, cultural, and political life. For many years, this conservative intuition, shared by so many Israelis, has lacked any organized community or movement.

The time has come for such a movement, and we are honored to offer it a platform. Our conservatism conference is part of this effort, helping develop a uniquely Israeli conservatism, exploring the interaction of conservatism with Judaism, Zionism, and Israeli identity. We invite you to join us, to hone and develop conservative ideas, and to help create a better future for the Jewish people and the State of Israel.

The first Israeli Conservatism Conference launched in 2019 and is set to become an annual national institution. For the first time ever, nearly 1,000 Israelis, including leading thinkers and activists, united to formulate a vision for a prosperous Israeli future, outlining conservative priorities in law, society, economics, culture, education, security and other critical fields. It was a day spent in the company of big ideas, great speakers, and the company of hundreds of like-minded friends.
