The Israel Congress 2013 will be held in Berlin, on November 10, and will place a special emphasis on action and will encourage young leadership. Ideas for partnership will be exchanged and conceptualized in five different labs: Politics, Business, Science, Culture, and Religion. The established goals of each lab will be implemented with the assistance of the Israel Congress partners.Israel Congress Website
