J. (SAN FRANCISCO) -- The virtual event — which raised money via tickets that ranged from $18 to students to $180 for families to $1,800 for “investors” — didn’t just dwell on the challenges of the past 13 months. It also featured a panel discussion that looked ahead to the next generation of Jewish college students, their approaches to Judaism and the openness of the community to hear new ideas.
Ocean Noah, a senior at SFSU and president of its Hillel chapter (and a former J. development assistant), asked questions of a handful of Jewish leaders from around the country. They included National Council of Jewish Women CEO Sheila Katz, Hillel International’s Springboard Fellowship director Danielle Natelson and San Francisco business owner Manny Yekutiel.
