The topic of this presentation is “Israel and the World Jewish Community: The Way Forward.”
Akiva Tor is the Ambassador of Israel to the Republic Korea. Previously he served as Head of Bureau for World Jewish Affairs and World Religions at the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Consul General of Israel in San Francisco, Director of the Israel Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei, Deputy Director for Palestinian Affairs in the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and as World Jewish Affairs Adviser to the President of Israel. Akiva is a graduate of the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government and holds an MA degree from Hebrew University in Jewish political thought and a BA from Columbia University in general philosophy. He has written and lectured on Jewish values in the foreign policy of Israel and on ethical considerations in international relations.
Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people with responsibilities and a defining relationship to the general Jewish collective, but it also is a civic democracy of all its citizens, a participating member of the global order, and a small, dynamic country facing significant security and political challenges in the Middle East and beyond. The Jewish communities in North America and Europe face challenges and have interests that not at all times are congruent with the Israeli experience. What should be the proper balance of mutual caring in the Israel – Diaspora relationship?
