NBN TLV - Rothschild 74, Tel Aviv,
Join us for our Sunday HuBrunch: Olim Midabrim! This month’s presenter is Jay Rosen, who made Aliyah 13 years ago and has since started his own business and several social engagement ventures involving Israel-Diaspora relations and cross-cultural communications (and volunteers with Nefesh b’Nefesh!). Jay will be sharing some of his code-breaking insights into Israeli society, including why alumni of Liberal Arts/Humanities degress as the most qualified to enter Israel’s employment and public sectors.
Originally from Washington, DC and a graduate of New York University, Jay is the founder of Ḥayyati, an international relations consultancy to better prepare local talent for international exposure and investment, empowering them with the tailor-made skills needed to become their own best salespeople. Jay previously served as the Student Affairs Coordinator and Director of the International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation at Tel Aviv University; the CEO of an international public relations agency and COO of its parent company, both of which helped put Tel Aviv on the map as an international tourist desitnation; and several other professional leadership positions to promote a nuanced and accessible understanding of Israel and the Middle East.
Jay has founded several social venture projects including The Here & There Club, a series of salon gatherings for fellow immigrants and internationals to discuss current events and promote civic involvement, and Sheik It Up, promoting a better awareness of the Middle East through food edutainment, both of which have received awards from philanthropic foundations and organizations. Additionally, Jay volunteers his time to teach practically-minded Hebrew to new immigrants, as well as develop international donor relations for IGY, Israel’s national LGBTQ youth organization.
The event is free, but please be sure to register!
