ELNET (European Leadership Network)

ELNET envisions a Europe in which:

  • There is robust support for Israel among European policy makers and opinion shapers.
  • Political, defense and business relations flourish between Israel and Europe.
  • European-Israeli discourse is democratic, balanced and multidimensional.
  • Israel’s supporters in Europe reflect the diversity of European society: multigenerational, multicultural, native born and immigrant.


  • ELNET works as a nonpartisan, nongovernmental facilitator to foster support throughout Europe for Israel based on shared values and interests.
  • ELNET engages elected European leaders and senior officials; foreign policy, defense and security experts; corporate and media elites in order to:
    • facilitate in-depth policy discussions on select issues of mutual interest,
    • build relationships between them and their Israeli counterparts.

Relationships between leading European and Israeli decision-makers—policymakers, policy advisers, government officials, experts, researchers, journalists, and academics—and between European citizens and their elected officials
Empowerment of European citizens to be politically engaged
Germany views Iran as a potential threat not just to Israel, but also to European countries.
Angela Merkel Germany's Chancellor
To weaken Israel is to weaken all of us...the war against terrorism is a war that threatens all of us. I would like this to be a shocking realization for the European Union.
