The Jewish Futures Competition Returns

Rarely, does an opportunity present itself for emerging voices to take center stage before the movers and shakers of an entire community. This competition provides you with the opportunity to share your ideas about how to shape the Jewish educational landscape of the 21st century. We encourage you to seize this moment to be bold, brave and visionary as we stand at the crossroads of what many have claimed to be a new era of Jewish life.

The Jewish Prosumer:
The Move from Consumer to Producer in Jewish Life and Learning.

How will Jewish life, living, and learning change as we move to a society in which individuals are not only consumers of information and culture, but also producers of their own and others’ experiences?

We invite you to share your answers to these questions in a way that is engaging, provocative, thoughtful and perhaps even inspirational.

The 2nd Jewish Futures Competition is part of the Jewish Futures Conference being held on Monday November 7th at the Jewish Federation of North America’s annual General Assembly in Denver, Colorado.

Last year’s winners, Patrick Aleph, Russel Neiss, Michael Sabani and Charles Schwartz have all gone on to receive accolades and major communal grants since their appearance at last year’s conference.

Sponsored by the Jewish Education Project and JESNA’s Lippman Kanfer Institute, and hosted by Jewish Federations of North America, The Jewish Futures Competition invites your thinking on how to create a dynamic Jewish future.

  • Exposure as a presenter before a select group of national Jewish leaders;
  • An opportunity to share your vision for a Jewish future;
  • An expense paid trip to participate in Jewish Futures Conference at the General Assembly of Jewish Federations of North America in Denver;
  • A cash prize of $1800 for each competition winner.
