We’re a group of friends who’ve come together from the varied fields of psychology, social science, education, academia, art and media to rekindle Jewish unity
Having grown up in Jewish homes we were surprised and excited by the realization that the very core of Jewish wisdom is the principle of unity. This inspired us to come together and apply our arts and sciences in the development of an innovative and open method aimed at bringing Jewish people, communities and organizations closer to each other, and by that, to our Jewish roots.
Our individual work had been aimed at finding solutions to pressing issues in the social space. As individuals we have created acclaimed documentaries on human adjustment to globalization, developed workshops in the educational system that enhance student communication and well-being, researched and constructed theoretical models exploring the efficient spread of positive values and ideas. Over time each of us started to see what we later discovered to be a common principle at work in our fields, one effecting all aspects of a society for better or worse.
It became our vision to widely promote messages for the need of connection, the interconnected world, and the importance of Jewish unity through both passive media consumption and active engagement campaigns through our lively Connected Wisdom Facebook page. We developed and offer both courses and one-time experiential trainings in how to find solutions to all of life’s problems through connection.
As a non-profit educational organization with 501(c)(3) status, we promote the importance of Jewish connection as a means to help the world thrive and overcome difficulties of all kinds.
Today we’re a growing community, a network of certified trainers and volunteers, people who understand that our future depends on our concerned connection with each other.
To connect Jewish people and communities to one another and to encourage Jewish people, regardless of age or affiliation, to interact in a deeper, more supportive manner, thus promoting a richer life experience for all.
We believe that together we can discover a fulfilling new direction in life– one rooted in the fundamental Jewish value of unity – and that this quality of connection can give purpose to Jewish people throughout the world. By embarking together on this exciting journey we can generate a positive shift towards healthier, more balanced societies worldwide. This will enable us as a people to thrive and do greater good for humanity.
