Opportunities & Challenges for Innovation in Jewish Life: American Judaism is in the midst of a paradigm shift, as Jewish leaders look for new ways, and build new institutions, to engage American Jews in Jewish life. Fresh ideas and approaches seem to proliferate weekly: according to a recent report, more than 600 Jewish ventures have been created in the last decade alone. Organizations like UpStart Bay Area, Joshua Venture Group, and Bikkurim, exist to nurture and support these efforts. Established organizations are opening up to new approaches to creating and delivering Jewish experiences that more people find relevant and meaningful to their lives.
