For those that have been surfing the usual Jewish innovation sites, there seems to be a theme floating around about European Jewish Innovation and getting the word out on what’s out there.
Recently, inspired by a unique survey and collaborative effort between Jumpstart, the Pears Foundation and ROI entitled, “The 2010 Survey of New Jewish Initiatives: European Key Findings Report,” Leadel created a montage of European Jewish start-ups in order to bring the survey to life.
Over the past fifteen years, a revival of Jewish life has spread across Europe, one that is rooted in its 2,000-year heritage, illustrates the diversity of contemporary Jewish thought and experience, and reflects the hope of a promising future.
Quietly, and in small pockets across the continent, Jewish social entrepreneurs have experimented with new forms of communities and organizations designed to engage a new generation of Jews, their partners and friends in meaningful Jewish experiences.
Thus, spanning across the continent of Europe from London to Kiev, the Leadel video explores a continent that rich is Jewish culture, ideas, and entrepreneurship, through the eyes of the people and their unique projects.
