¿Quien es más Jewliciouso? Batalla de los innovadores!

Hoppa!

There are, as always, lots of buzzwords flying around in Jewish communal settings. One of these is “innovation.” Young Jews know that they are Jewish, but many either don’t know what that means or don’t like the traditional options available to them to manifest their identities. So many of them are reinventing their Jewish identities and making up new ways in which they can not just be Jewish, but do Jewish. We’ve seen this in the emergence of indie minyans across North America as well as in the proliferation of Jewy projects, most of which, like their creators, are unaffiliated with the broader community. Is this a good thing? What the hell do I know. But today we present you with two innovators who have been getting a lot of buzz lately. In this, the inaugural edition of ¿Quien es más Jewliciouso? (apologies to 70’s era SNL for the name and to Sarah Silverman for the graphic) you get to decide who you feel is more Jewy, good for the Jews, cool or Jewlicious (in the literal sense – no one featured in this series is in any way affiliated with the Web site of the same name). So without further ado, here are our candidates:

Ariel Beery Dan Sieradski
Ariel Beery

Latest Buzz: Authored article in Haaretz with partner Aharon Horwitz:

Instead of providing massive and recurring grants, philanthropists should focus on translating founders’ “sweat equity” into viable prototypes through small grants of seed capital. Then, if the market responds favorably, philanthropists could help bring a venture to scale while requiring sustainability. Finally, out-sourcing, mergers and acquisitions would be encouraged to cause entrepreneurs to share best practices with one another.

Dan Sieradski

Latest Buzz: Addressed the GA in Nashville:

We are overdue for establishing an open marketplace for Jewish ideas, bootstrapped by communal funds. Or as Jonathan Sarna called it in a recent JTA interview, what we need is more Jewish venture capitalism. “We only have to look at the high-tech industry,” said Sarna, “to see that all ideas don’t all pan out, but all you need is one Google or Mapquest to justify a whole lot of ideas that don’t go anywhere.”

Projects: Editor, Publisher and Founder Jewschool, Creator ShulShopper, first part of the JewItYourself, meant to assist people looking for appropriate minyans, indie or otherwise.
