The dramatic events that took place in the world and in the Middle East during the past year teach us that the paths towards the global tomorrow, the Israeli tomorrow, and the Jewish tomorrow are paved with difficulties, opportunities, and uncertainties. This reality poses leadership challenges of the most difficult type. The purpose of the discussions in the Conference was to deal with a myriad of dimensions which together compose the world of tomorrow.
