Genesis Generation

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.
