5:00 pm - Jewish Leadership Forum: “Jewish Leadership in the 21st Century” Featuring Zack Bodner & Moderated by Scott Kaufman

November 2, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Jewish Leadership in the 21st Century – Featuring Zack Bodner, President & CEO, Oshman Family JCC

Zack’s book “Why Do Jewish?” addresses some of the most important questions of our time for the Jewish people….. How do I live a more meaningful life? How might I feel more connected to others, to the world around me, to the past and the future? In an era when we can choose our own identities, why might we choose to identify as Jews? In this Jewish Leadership Forum, Zack shares some of the opportunities and challenges for Jewish leadership based on his “A Manifesto for 21st Century Jewish Peoplehood”.

ZACK BODNER is a seeker, writer, storyteller, community organizer, and above all else, a doer. While serving as the CEO of the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, he oversaw the creation of the Center for Social Impact, the Taube Center for Jewish Peoplehood, and the Z3 Project, a global effort to reimagine Diaspora-Israel relations. Before joining the JCC, Zack served for 14 years as the Pacific Northwest Regional Director of AIPAC. Zack holds a master’s degree in philosophy of religion and theology from Claremont Graduate University and a bachelor’s degree from Yale University. Additionally, he studied at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Ohr Someyach yeshiva, and Stanford Graduate School of Business. He is a member of YPO and participated in the Executive Leadership Seminar at the Aspen Institute. Zack lives in Silicon Valley with his wife and three children.
