The Kyiv Jewish Forum is an annual event bringing together top global leaders to discuss and share their insights on the most pressing issues facing Jewish communities worldwide.

The purpose is to foster dialogue that will help bring about much-needed solutions to challenges such as rising antisemitism, the growth of the anti-Israel boycott movement, and the effects of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

This will be the third edition of the Kyiv Jewish Forum, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the establishment of official diplomatic relations between Israel and Ukraine.

The two-day Forum -- co-hosted by the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine, the Center for Jewish Impact, and the Combat Antisemitism Movement -- will be broadcast online on December 15th-16th, 2021 at 15:00 Ukraine time / 8:00 AM EST.

The past Kyiv Jewish Forums in 2019 and 2020 featured hundreds of prominent decisionmakers from Israel and Ukraine, as well as the United States and Europe, laying out their visions for how to protect and nurture Jewish life in all corners of the planet.

Jews and Ukrainians are united by more than a thousand-year history, and Jews – immigrants from Ukraine live in every corner of the world today. Dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Israel and Ukraine, the third Kyiv Jewish Forum will provide an opportunity to assess the past and look into the future of Jews around the world, many of whom have Ukrainian roots.
