With representation from 16 countries, ROI’s Ibero-American Gathering opened last night in Buenos Aires. This, ROI’s second Latin American gathering, was hopping from the opening minutes. The ruach of almost 50 Latinos electric throughout the hotel.
Developed in co-ordination with local program partners including Hillel Argentina, ORT Mexico and Taglit-Birthright Argentina, this five day program of unique networking and skill-building sessions will move the needle by “harnessing and elevating our collective impact in creating a Jewish future that is vibrant, relevant and widely accessible.” (Justin Korda, ROI Community’s executive director).
Speaking at the opening program, Sandy Cardin – president of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, discussed “the role each of you play in making your own future.”
He continued, “It’s not about changing and tweaking Jewish life we know; it’s about a revolution – bringing new ideas to Jewish life. Viva La Revolución.”
