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

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 2nd Jewish Futures Competition is part of the Jewish Futures Conference being held on Monday November 7th from 12:45 to 3:30pm 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.

The Jewish Futures Conference will bring together visionary thinkers, passionate individuals, and inspiring presentations in a conference designed to shift the horizon of our thinking in Jewish education.

Advances in media and technology are propelling rapid changes in the ways we live and learn that extend far beyond the technologies themselves. The Jewish Futures Conference will provide a space to imagine, learn and engage in purposeful and courageous conversation about the future of Jewish education and how it can thrive in today’s and tomorrow’s world.

The theme for this year’s Jewish Futures Conference and the focus of the Competition is: The Jewish Prosumer: The Move from Consumer to Producer in Jewish Life, Living, 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. Click here to read more about the video competition.
