The Israel Public Diplomacy Forum, a non-profit, non-partisan educational organization, was established to advance international understanding of Israel and the Middle East.

The purpose of IPD Forum events is not to advocate a particular position, but rather to explain the issues, address questions and enhance understanding. In Texas, IPD events have been hosted by various groups including the World Affairs Councils of Greater Houston and San Antonio, and Texas Women in Business.
