The October 7th attacks on Israel and the war that followed unleashed a global wave of antisemitism fueled by Israel’s adversaries, and amplified by ignorance. Jewish communities around the world facing daily attacks have been serving bravely as ambassadors for the Israeli cause, providing crucial support to Israel and extending aid to our brothers and sisters.

By doing so, they reaffirm that truth and solidarity know no borders. MuniWorld 2024 will honor the resilience and efforts of Jewish communities worldwide and explore how to harness this solidarity for a brighter future.

Alongside Jewish communities, the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel and mayors throughout the nation are encouraged by the global support and concern from their colleagues around the globe. Our annual gathering is an opportunity to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation.

MuniWorld 2024 will delve into critical issues stemming from October 7th, including:

Dear Conference Attendees,

For the first time, Jerusalem is honored and proud to host this important international conference organized by the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel. The focus on increasing innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity is particularly important as a significant aspect of our municipal work and guaranteeing the city’s future.

I do not believe there is a more natural location than Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, to serve as the venue for this large annual event. In recent years, Jerusalem has increasingly established its position as the capital of Israeli innovation. More and more international and local technology companies are choosing to locate themselves in Jerusalem, and benefit from Israel’s most advanced academic, research, and medical facilities.

I pleased to welcome you, my colleagues, the dozens of mayors and guests who have come to the conference from around the world. We are proud of your participation and of the privilege host you and learn together from our joint experiences as public leaders.
This conference is yet another expression of the extensive cooperation between the City of Jerusalem, and the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel, led by my friend Haim Bibas, Chairman of the Federation of Local Authorities and Mayor of Modi’in-Maccabim-Reut.
Wishing you all a successful and enriching conference,

Mr Haim Bibas

Mayor of Modi'in Maccabim Reut

Chairman of the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel

Each of these fields directly influences residents’ quality of life in their respective localities.
The event will also include the 11th Local Government Conference, which will be attended by senior central government officials, including the President of the State of Israel and the Prime Minister of the State of Israel.

Our international guests are invited to stay in Jerusalem and participate in a variety of tailor-made innovation tours.

Jerusalem is one of a kind; its diversity and uniqueness bring people together from across the world. The MUNIWORLD Conference promises to be an unforgettable experience, and includes an exclusive dinner hosted by Mr. Moshe Leon, Mayor of Jerusalem.
