Webinars

Originally planned as a webinar series designed to showcase technical and social innovations that originate from Israel and which have an impact upon the world we live in, AIFL responded to the Covid-19 pandemic by launching a webinar series, featuring two webinars each week, one being an informational / education-based webinar and the other being a social / activity-based webinar. AIFL creates panels of presenters from Israel and the United States, and aims the webinars at audiences from both countries, designed to bridge the gaps between the two peoples, emphasize the commonality and similarity of the current predicament, and through these, increase the bonds between the people of both countries. Webinar sessions include a diversity of presentations and issues, designed to appeal to a broad audience. See below for more details.

‘Dreamers Who Dare’ Webinar Series



In 2019 AIFL launched the Webinar series “Israeli Dreamers Who Dare,” designed to bring stories of technological and social innovations that emanate from Israel and which have an impact upon the world we live in. Learn more here. 

Multifaith Outreach Webinar Series


Our new webinar series discusses the Israel and Multifaith outreach. Learn more here.
