I'm on the road in North America for PresenTense, just having spent two days at the Orthodox Forum where I spoke about the Odyssey Years phenomenon and its implications for modern Orthodoxy. I'll post more about that once I assimilate the fascinating conversations that took place among a group of people whose Jewish learning and knowledge base was mind blowing. I tried to turn the conversation towards Modern Orthodoxy within a broader framework of Jewish purpose. More on that down the road.

With all the buzz about Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and MySpace, social media are a hot topic. Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that 56 Jewish professionals and community members called in to last Wednesday’s call, “Going Digital: Mega Jewish Nonprofits in the Online Sphere.” Though everyone is talking about – and, let’s be honest, may be a little intimidated by – this new technology, the lesson of the call was that it’s nothing more (or less) than one more tool to get the job done.

For one week, millions of young people around the world will join a growing movement of entrepreneurial people, to generate new ideas and to seek better ways of doing things. Countries across six continents are coming together to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week, an initiative to inspire young people to embrace innovation, imagination and creativity. To think big. To turn their ideas into reality. To make their mark.
From 16 - 22 November 2009, Global Entrepreneurship Week will connect young people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. Students, educators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, employees, non-profit leaders, government officials and many others will participate in a range of activities, from online to face-to-face, and from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings.
PresenTense is going to be a partner in Global Entrepreneurship Week, and were looking for ideas from our commuinity about the types of programs and events we should run at the Jerusalem Hub and around the world during this week.
We look forward to hearing your ideas and thoughts!
