Want to join a team dedicated to creative exploration and generating new projects and applications for the Jewish community? Then apply to the PresenTense Institute for Creative Zionism (PICZ), a summer institute running from June 18th until July 31 in Jerusalem. (Deadline for applications is this Friday, April 20th, so finish your taxes and apply at the website, creativezionism.com.)
Dedicated to transforming the way the Jewish people think, program and work, PICZ has been inspired by the vision of Zionist thinkers across the ideological spectrum such as Ahad Ha’am, AD Gordon and Ze’ev Jabotinsky, who foresaw Israel as the laboratory for the renewal of the Jewish People, and the reinvigoration of Hebrew culture.
Institute fellows will be innovators on the cutting edge of Jewish creativity: programmers and designers, informal educators and school vice principals, nonprofit managers and biotech visionariesâ€”anyone with a vision and a portfolio of innovation. It is the hope of the founders that the PICZ will create a network of Zionist thinkers and doers: call it Chalutz 2.0.
More information is available on the website for the PICZ. Apply now!
