Hillel Senior Jewish Educator Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz may have scored the biggest invite on the planet.

The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, is where Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev rubs elbows with Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. It's a tougher ticket than the red carpet at the Academy Awards, let alone a Super Bowl field pass.

The World Economic Forum is an independent international organization committed to "improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas." Corporate members are required to have at least $5 billion in annual turnover.

When he wasn't sharing insights with pundits, politicians, activists and billionaires, Rabbi Yanklowitz offered his perspective on the January 26-30 event and its issues with CNN and on a blog.

Read what he has to say:

Where are the Women in the Global Future Discourse?

Global Affairs: A Balancing Act?

A Life without Limbs, a Life without Limits
