JDOV invites inspiring speakers to share their Jewish dream, observation or vision.


INSPIRATION – We invite compelling speakers who are keen to share inspiring ideas with others. We believe that inspiration can be contagious, whether it is expressed in a live performance or online.

REFLECTIVENESS – We ask our speakers to delve deep and think about what really matters to them in deciding on their topic. In turn, we hope our viewers will also be reflective and ask themselves: “What is my Jewish dream, observation, or vision? What idea would I want to offer the world if I had 10-12 minutes to share something that inspires my Jewish identity?”

INCLUSIVITY – We invite speakers from all denominations, genders, genres and viewpoints; some speakers are well-known and others are talented newcomers.

GENEROSITY – Our speakers share their ideas without payment; our audiences listen with open minds; the videos are distributed under Creative Commons licenses which prohibit anyone to profit financially from them.

SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS – We are committed to the Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam and believe that we all have the potential to improve the world. In particular, we believe that words can bring ideas into being and therefore hope that JDOV can and will initiate positive change in the world.

Jewish tradition values words – words bring ideas into being



In addition to our established partnership with Limmud, we also partner with other events and organisations internationally. If you would like to partner with us to create a JDOV event, please get in touch.
