An objective of the Genesis Prize is to inspire a proud next generation of Jews. We want our laureates to help us achieve this objective by sharing their stories of accomplishment, as well as their narrative of Jewish identity, so that it is accessible to young adults. We also aim to engage in a broad conversation with young adults – the generation of community organizers, of "bottom up" leaders, of digital media experts – about who inspires them. We have started the discussion with Jewish millenials around the globe, talking to them about identity and surfacing inspiring stories.
