Family Research Council, International Leaders Summit and National Religious Broadcasters are co-hosting the first U.S. Presidential Candidate Forum to be held in the state of Israel and focused on issues of mutual interest and concerns as well as economic, foreign, defense and cultural policy.

Each US presidential candidate will have a one hour segment at the forum, presenting their own ideas and solutions to questions put to them by a select group of media leaders.

Through this highly focused and personalized opportunity to address key issues, US presidential candidates will be able to articulate their vision to a live audience in Jerusalem comprised of supporters and partners of the host organizations, concerned residents in the state of Israel and audiences in the US and around the world through US and international televised broadcasting groups, online and print media. The forum in Israel will accomplish the following:

  • The forum provides presidential candidates with a high-level and substantive international platform discussing the future of US foreign policy, US-Israel relations, threats to religious freedom and our common civilization based on the rule of law and economic freedom.
  • US Presidential candidates will have an historic first opportunity to communicate their views on issues facing this region of the world directly to concerned American citizens visiting the state of Israel and to friends of the US in Israel.
  • The Presidential candidates will have an opportunity to address the plight of Christians in Africa and the Middle East, the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe and beyond, with an emphasis on solutions.
