Do you want to connect with other Jews in their 20s-30s who are passionate about making an impact in the world?
Join us to chat, have a drink, and hear from global development leaders across the world about the need for global Jewish responsibility. We will be joined by Dyonna Ginsburg, CEO of OLAM and Kira Blumer, CEO of Tzedek and will come together to explore the mosaic of Jewish & Israeli development work around the world and find out why over 35 new organisations have been established in this field since the year 2000.
Our panellists will share why their Jewish values inspire them to work in the field of Global Jewish Responsibility, and you can find out how you can get involved through a wide range of volunteering and career opportunities.
