What is the Power of a Movement?

This evening, special guests joined together for a reception and small session focusing on “What is the power of a Movement.”

BBYO CEO Matt Grossman kicked off the proceedings by acknowledging the amazing Orlando community, many of whom were present representing the 200+ volunteers from the area.

Also in attendance were many of the 100 professionals in the field of Movement building who have gathered together for our “Movements & Shakers” meeting, exploring collaboration across organizations in the Jewish youth space. Those assembled then enjoyed remarks from notable Movement-makers, moderated by Matt Grossman. The powerful talk included messages about the importance of uniting as one Jewish people, of creating spaces wherein teens can be themselves completely, of reaching out to Jews in remote areas, and of focusing response and action where it is needed.

It was a night to remember, and perfectly segued into our next event—the gathering of 3,000 teens from diverse places, backgrounds, practices and traditions…coming together as one.
