The Tel Aviv International Salon is the largest speakers forum in Israel. The nonprofit organization was established in 2009 to provide a challenging and thought-provoking nonpartisan platform for the Tel Aviv young professional community. With an increasing number of motivated young adults from around the globe choosing to make Tel Aviv their home, the Salon provides a unique forum to learn, debate and discuss Israeli, Jewish and world politics, economics, society, and culture with a diverse range of engaging decision makers and leading influencers. “The Salons are politically unaffiliated and as such do not support any specific candidate or political party,” notes founder Jay Shultz. “That being said, we are passionate about Zionist activism, and championing our community of 60,000+ young leaders to get their hands dirty in the party of their choice to continue the pioneering spirit in building the State of Israel.”
