Community Announcements:

Community Hackathon

This event will bring together as many as 200 of our peers to brainstorm and create solutions for how to better engage Jews in their 20s and 30s in the Jewish community. We are looking for creative and passionate people who want to make a difference!

The culmination of the Hackathon will be a Shark Tank style pitch competition where winning ideas and solutions will receive FUNDING for implementation.

Click here to view the event flyer for more information as well as a link to the online registration. You can also view the Facebook event page here. Please go ahead and register if you are able to attend.

It would also be a HUGE help if you would share this info with others. We want to get 200 people for the event and could use your help!!!

If for some reason you aren’t able to attend the Hackathon on May 21, I hope you will at least join us for the Sha-HACK-a-Thon (Shabbat) dinner Friday May 19. This camp themed, Happy Hour Shabbat dinner will be a super fun way to kickoff the weekend, network with lots of other young professionals, and build community!
