NU: Media Innovation Initiative for Jewish Millenials

Later today in Montreal, thirty young new-media influencers are coming together to re-think and re-brand what it means to be Jewish in this era of global connectivity.

The first-ever NU Media Innovation Initiative has invited social networkers, game-designers, cultural theorists, and entrepreneurs to this think-tank to look at how to make Jewish life more relevant for Millenials.

Mike Savatovsky is the creator and co-facilitator of the event. He is also a member of the ROI Community, an international network of more than 800 activists in 50 countries who are redefining Jewish engagement for a new generation. (Nu: Montreal is part of ROI Connection Points, a pilot project of ROI Community.)
Mike joined Sonali Karnick in-studio for a chat.
