JERUSALEM — One-hundred fifty of the Jewish world’s leading change makers from 32 countries will convene in Jerusalem on June 7-11 for the 2015 ROI Summit, ROI Community’s flagship program. ROI Community is an initiative of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.  Among the ROI participants will be Jonathan Lev, who was one of the founders of the Boulder-based Renewable Choice Energy and is currently the Executive Director of the Boulder Jewish Community Center.

Over the five-day gathering, these change makers will embark on a journey of pausing, experimenting with new forms of expression and shifting perspectives, ultimately leaving them with renewed motivation, ideas and professional skills and connections to bring back to their communities.

“I am thrilled to join an incredible group of Jewish innovators at this year’s ROI Summit. It is a true honor to be part of the ROI Community. This network connects me and the Boulder community to the forefront of Jewish ideas and creative thinking. Thank you to the vision of Lynn Schusterman and the foundation staff to create such a powerful opportunity for people from around the world.”

This year’s participants bring a diverse set of skills and talent — including app developers, crusading journalists and toy designers — to their efforts to build a thriving Jewish future and a better world. To learn more about the participants click here.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
