The Jewish camp experience across North America, encompassing all denominations and affiliations, helps build a more vibrant Jewish future.

2. Birthright at 13: Investors, Impact and Innovation, hosted by David Mamet and John Burnham
Now in its bar/bat mitzvah year, the Birthright Israel Foundation invites you to raise a glass to celebrate our investors, impact and innovation. Co-hosts David Mamet and John Burnham share an investor's and parent's view of the program, recent alumnae tell of the impact the 10-day experience had on them, and Birthright Israel Foundation’s president David Fisher speaks to how the foundation continues to innovate to ensure that generations to come will receive this transformative gift.
Dinner is kosher style.

3. Emerging Jewish Artists Impact Jewish Life, hosted by Randy and Pam Schoenberg and Foundation for Jewish Culture
An exciting evening of film and visual art featuring L.A. Six Points Fellows--emerging Jewish artists whose work connects young people to their Jewish identity. The Six Points Fellowship supports artists who create new work that explores Jewish ideas and experience. Join this important conversation about how creative expression is essential to Jewish community, identity, and our understanding of the world.

4. Engaging Millennials, hosted by JFN, at Moishe House West Hollywood
Through the Shahaf movement in Israel and programs such as Avodah, Tevel b’Tzedek, and many others, millennials are finding deep meaning by forming communities that together engage in service and learning. Visit one of L.A.’s Moishe Houses to enjoy a uniquely L.A. dinner—a kosher Mexican food truck—and good conversation with participants and alumni of these programs. Kari Dunn Saratovsky facilitates a dialogue between funders and these young leaders, to explore how young people communicate, volunteer, take action, influence their peers, and work to make a difference.
