Leaders of two Jewish social action groups addressed a White House forum on faith-based social innovations.

Shawn Landres, the founder of Jewish Jumpstart, and Jon Rosenberg, the CEO of Repair the World, were among 13 leaders of faith-based groups and three government officials who participated Wednesday in a Faith-Based Social Innovators Forum convened by the White House.

Landres described a generational shift from Jewish social action advocacy addressing Jewish needs to cultivating Jewish activism in the wider community.

“The primary engine for innovation no longer is found in centralized communal institutions working to meet collective Jewish needs,” he said in his address. “Today, that energy has shifted outward to independent grass-roots initiatives, many of which seek to express Jewish values through service, education, and social and civic advocacy.”
