Online Brainstorming Marathon for Future of the Jewish People

The Israeli government is inviting Jews from around the world to participate in a 72-hour online conversation next week to help formulate strategies for strengthening the Jewish People and bolstering Diaspora-Israel ties

The three-day event starts Sunday and will open the floor to all Jews to help formulate strategies for strengthening both Jewish identity and Israel-Diaspora relations while ensuring the Jewish world continues to flourish well into the future.

Groups and individuals from Argentina, Australia, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States have already confirmed their participation. The marathon will be run out of Jerusalem where some two dozen professionals will analyze participants’ insights and examine ways to integrate them into the recommendations set to be presented to the Israeli government in the near future.

The session will be “crowdsourced,” ensuring that the recommendations reflect a diversity of views and perspectives beyond those traditionally heard in Jewish communal forums.

  1. Will G-d be there as only G-d really knows.

  2. I've got a modular design concept that has Jewish symbolism built into it (it just fell into place, and it sounds crazy, but I feel there was a reason I linked this concept to various things), and in the right hands, this concept can double as a toy, educational toy, helpful hands for various tasks, or as a survival tool. With the right engineering, this concept can move on to more beneficial applications (research, security, defense, first response, logistical movement), but before I let it go to the highest bidder, I want it to maintain its soul, because once you strip out the soul and the symbolism weaved into it, it's just a tool with a lot of arms. And once I get people to understand this seemingly simple concept, who knows what they'll do with it. I'd rather it be used and developed by people I believe will use it properly though.

    As I developed it, I was constantly bombarded with images of great people and things that inspired this concept (sometimes, it was inspired by horrible things and events as well), and I cannot deny the Jewish influences behind this concept. If anybody could make use of this concept, I'll waive the licensing fees as long as I believe they'll make good use of it. In my hands, however, this concept will fall.

  3. Christians must demand a Coptic 2-state in East Egypt – Israel must demand the restoration of the Balfour. Such is also good for Muslims. After all, the Muslims were handed 23 vast regime states by the British and French which never existed 100 years ago. No peace can come without these two factors no matter what discussions are held.
