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
There cannot be normalized, complete relations with Iran so long as Iran does not recognize Israel’s right to exist.
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.
