Previous Focal Points

Since 2016, OLAM’s annual Focal Point gathers Jews engaged in global service, international development, and humanitarian aid to network, exchange ideas and best practices, and celebrate their shared commitment to serving the world’s most vulnerable individuals.

Our last Focal Point was July 1-2 2019 at the Pearlstone Retreat Center in the United States.
