What is the ROI Summit?

The ROI Summit is our signature gathering in Jerusalem that brings together global Jewish leaders with track records of impact to share knowledge, collaborate, be inspired and bolster their toolboxes for change.

The Summit is more than a conference: it is the gateway to ROI Community. At the conclusion of the Summit, participants become members of the year-round ROI Community network.

Our 2023 Summit will be for existing ROI Community members, and will take place in Israel during the first week of December 2023. 

The next "traditional" ROI Summit—where we welcome new members into our network—will take place in 2024.

ROI members and organizational partners will be able to recommend candidates to the 2024 Summit approximately 5-6 months ahead of that gathering.

About the gathering

At the ROI Summit, while we invite a small number of keynote speakers and outside facilitators to lead select sessions, the majority of our methodologies position the participants themselves as both speakers and spectators, presenters and consultants, knowledge seekers and experts.

The participant-led nature of the Summit design models the behavior we hope to see embodied by our members at the gathering and beyond: ROI is a community of reciprocity, and we expect incoming changemakers to be eager to both gain from and actively contribute to their ROI peers.

Apart from a nominal fee, travel expenses and program costs are covered for participants.
