Featuring Rabbi Mike Uram, Chief Jewish Learning Officer, Jewish Federations of North America
Based on his experience at Penn Hillel, Pardes and JFNA, Rabbi Mike Uram will share five core values that leaders can use to proactively build culture in organizations and communities that are resilient, inclusive, and foster a more productive kind of public discourse. These values are tools that leaders can use to both heal broken discourse in their own communities and that can help them successfully navigate moments of crisis.

Before that, he served as the Chief Vision and Education Officer for Pardes North America building a new platform for Jewish education in North America for the past two years.

He is the author of the best-selling book entitled, Next Generation Judaism: How College Students and Hillel Can Help Reinvent Jewish Organizations, which won a National Jewish Book Award.
