You know what they say about forgetting Jerusalem…
You may not be able to visit the city in person, but thanks to The Jerusalem Parliament, you can feel part of a city still reinventing itself, 5,000 years in. Join the entrepreneurs, innovators, and social activists at the forefront of Jerusalem’s development into a cultural, educational, and innovation capital for Israel and the Jewish world in a series of fascinating lectures about the city, hosted by the Menachem Begin Heritage Center.

“Heder to Hub: Innovation in Ultra-Orthodox Education”- Menachem Bombach
If “Haredi entrepreneur” sounds like a paradox, you’ve never met Menachem Bombach: Founder of the academic preparatory program for ultra-Orthodox students at Hebrew University and award-winning principal of a network of Haredi schools, Bombach believes there’s no contradiction between Torah study and professional success. Moreover, he insists that viewing Haredim through the media’s lens misses encouraging educational trends already happening in their community. Join him for “Heder to Hub: Innovation in Ultra-Orthodox Education” to learn about emerging processes among Israel’s ultra-Orthodox population, and how pioneering Haredi institutions in Jerusalem are leading the charge for change.
