150 of the Jewish world’s leading change makers from 32 countries convened in Jerusalem this week for the 2015 ROI Summit, ROI Community's flagship program. ROI Community is an initiative of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
ROI Community is an international network of activists and change makers who are redefining Jewish engagement for a new generation of global citizens. ROI Community members channel a diversity of perspectives, skills and interests toward a shared passion for advancing ideas and partnerships that will strengthen Jewish communities and improve society.
Over the five-day gathering, the change makers embarked on a journey of pausing, experimenting with new forms of expression and shifting perspectives, ultimately leaving them with renewed motivation, ideas and professional skills and connections to bring back to their communities.
This year’s participants bring a diverse set of skills and talent—including app developers, crusading journalists and toy designers—to their efforts to build a thriving Jewish future and a better world.
“We are proud that the ROI Summit has become an exceptional forum to convene some of the most promising young Jews from around the world, providing a platform for them to challenge each other and develop their visions for change,” said Justin Korda, executive director of ROI Community.
“This group of inspiring leaders has incredible potential to infuse new energy into the global Jewish community.”
