Australian Gathering: ROI Community & Australian Jewish Funders
On August 26, 2012, 50 young Jews from Sydney and Melbourne gathered to explore existing and potential pathways of Jewish life in Australia.
This intensive one-day gathering was organized in partnership between ROI Community (ROI), a global network of Jewish innovators created by Lynn Schusterman, and Australian Jewish Funders (AJF)**, a forum for its donor members to enhance the understanding and quality of philanthropy. The energy and buzz in the room during the gathering was palpable and it was inspiring to see so many young adults passionately discussing, debating and brainstorming topics relevant to Australian Jewry.
