Slingshot San Diego: Strengthening Community - February 12

If you are interested in learning more about innovative responses to the changing needs of Jewish people in San Diego and communities across the U.S., please save the date Tuesday, February 12 from 5 to 7 p.m. to be part of a Slingshot San Diego gathering. Hosted by the Jewish Federation of San Diego County, New York based Slingshot and the 2030 Project, and cosponsored by Congregation Beth Israel. Slingshot San Diego is designed for all San Diegans who are excited about innovation as a strategy for increasing Jewish engagement, caring and connection to Israel.

The New York based Slingshot, which was created to ensure that Judaism remains relevant and engaging in the 21st Century, annually produces a respected resource guide recognizing the top 50 Jewish innovation projects in North America. Facilitated by Will Schneider, Slingshot Executive Director, this gathering of members of the San Diego Jewish community including investors, board members, professionals and Federation grantees, will provide participants an opportunity to align their values with promising organizations and projects dedicated to strengthening Jewish life. At the end of the convening, participants will decide where to grant $10,000 to support innovation locally and nationally.

Slingshot San Diego will also be held in partnership with Congregation Beth El, Tifereth Israel Synagogue, Congregation Beth Am, and Temple Solel. If you would like to learn more about the 18 innovation projects supported by the Jewish Federation and outstanding organizations nationwide, please RSVP to leew@jewishfederationsandiego.org. Please list the Jewish organizations with which you are most closely involved with, if any. 

This event will be held at Congregation Beth Israel at 9001 Towne Centre Drive, San Diego, CA, 92122. Space is limited with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis. Light kosher refreshments will be served.

Be the change that strengthens our community!
