Annual Program Recording
The theme of JCSA's 2008 Annual Program was “LINKED: Maximizing technology for the future of the Jewish community”
Jewish communal organizations and agencies are faced with technological advances that are changing the way people interact with each other, obtain knowledge, support causes, and work. Are we able to adapt as a community to provide services more efficiently, reach more constituents and build meaningful communities? How can we respond to existing needs and preferences during this transformative period? Given that community building and leveraging community are key to the work of Jewish communal organizations, understanding the opportunities afforded by social networking and exploring the ways to explode them was a critical discussion for our conference.
The questions addressed at the Annual Program included:
- What is currently happening, and what is next, in the world of technology and social networking?
- What are some of the innovative uses of technology already being implemented?
- What opportunities should the Jewish community be maximizing?
