Jewish Peoplehood: The Original Network (subtitled)

Seth CohenFilmed at Limmud Conference 2011

In an age of increased connectivity, expanding  opportunity to rapidly share information and the ability to create global collective impact, networks have become a vital mode of connecting ideas, institutions and people. More than just technology platforms, networks allow for individuals to share social capital, express common passion, and drive change. In my talk, I explore the opportunities presented by network-thinking and the ways those opportunities are being explored in the Jewish world.

As the Director of Network Initiatives for the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Seth leads the Foundation’s global efforts to identify, connect and support networks of young Jewish adults in order to help them create Jewish experiences and communities for themselves and their peers. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Seth also holds numerous volunteer leadership positions in his local and national Jewish community, including currently serving as the President of Jewish Family & Career Services of Atlanta and co-chair of the Assembly of the Jewish Agency for Israel in Jerusalem. He has served on as Vice-chair and Chair of Allocations of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta as well as a member of the Board of Joshua Venture Group. Most importantly, Seth is married to his best friend Marci, and together they have three children that attend the Epstein School in Atlanta.
