POST-SUMMIT DIALOGUE WILL CONTINUE ONLINE AT JEWISHTEENSUMMIT.SLACK.COM

The Summit on Jewish Teens IN BALTIMORE GATHERED
national and local leaders from across the Jewish
world who care about Jewish education and
engagement for the teen audience. 

 

This 24-hour event offered unique opportunities for philanthropists, lay leaders, foundation and federation professionals, professional leaders of Jewish organizations, researchers, educators and teens to network, to learn from another, and to hear about the latest developments in the field.

Important topics of conversation—with a focus on shared communal priorities—included teen leadership development, diversity and inclusion, “tikkun olam,” teen entrepreneurship, teens and tech, and Israel, along with other teen engagement and education areas.

As part of the program, Summit participants met with teen leaders from all of the major Jewish youth movements and experienced BBYO International Convention's opening ceremonies—a gathering of 2,400 Jewish teens from around the world.
