Hoback was invited as part of a non-partisan Jewish advocacy group alongside Conservative MPs David Sweet and Ted Opitz, Liberal MPs Carolyn Bennett and John McCallum, and senator Grant Mitchell.
Hoback is no stranger to international politics. He was named to the federal governmentâ€™s International Trade Committee earlier this year.
He also serves as president of ParlAmericas -- an independent network of national legislatures of 35 states from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.
