The Jewish Futures Conference engages Milken seniors as active participants in a process of Jewish renewal and innovation. Groups of students invent projects designed to transform Jewish life on college campuses across North America in realms such as Jewish culture, spirituality, social action, politics, Zionism, education, and feminism.
In reshaping the Jewish Future, the primary goal is for each student to become a producer (as opposed to a consumer) of Judaism. To do this, students analyze and critique cutting edge Jewish renewal programs throughout the world. While some students adapt these programs to new settings and purposes, others invent entirely free-standing models for engaging their young Jewish peers.
