Fusing piety and hutzpah, obligation, and inspiration, we are harnessing an untapped energy in the Jewish community –attracting and mobilizing Jews who contribute their vast intellectual and creative resources to address real-world concerns effectively and unapologetically. In addition to establishing a vital presence in Los Angeles, we have also become a leading model of engaging, authentic, resonant Jewish life that is inspiring change in synagogues and communities around the country.
