The Junction Annual: Our World in Transition

May 19-21, Berlin

Let yourself be inspired, seduced and engaged


It is evident that the global landscape we live in is changing rapidly. These changes beget big questions like, “Where are we going?”, “What does it mean to belong to something?”, “What is the future of civil society?”, and “Where do I fit in?” This year the Junction Annual will gather Jews from all over Europe and the globe to look at an ever-changing world through a Jewish lens. As Jewish young professionals our entire identity is in a state of constant transition and flux, together we will celebrate, discover, brainstorm, and explore where the opportunities are that come during a time of transition and what our responsibility is to seize those moments.

The Junction Annual will be a conference combining all the elements of well-recognized Junction programs as well as begin a new chapter for the Junction calendar.The Junction Annual is a yearly conference that is a resource, seminar, and inspiration to those in attendance and the communities they represent.


It is up to us to be present during this time of transition and to recognize what our role is as Jews, professionals, and global citizens. Junction will provide the platform for every interested person to shape themselves and the space around them into something dynamic and modern for the global Jewish community.


Professionals in their mid-20s and 30s who are Jewish, motivated, open-minded, cosmopolitan, and willing to share of themselves


Berlin is a major city bursting with ideas, inspiration, art, culture, and creativity which will help us delve deeper in this year’s Junction annual topic: Our World in Transition. We are offering a mix between exclusive company site visits where participants meet with different management and visit facilities and in-depth workshops, plenary sessions with renowned speakers, and informal networking experiences.
