Nachum hosted Rabbi Aharon Ariel Lavi, Founder and Director of Hakhel: The Jewish Intentional Communities Incubator in the Diaspora, live at JM in the AM to discuss the important work of Hakhel.
From the Hakhel website:
Founded in 2014, Hakhel is the first and largest global incubator for Jewish intentional communities. Its mission is to spark and support new expressions of Jewish life in the Diaspora by nurturing the growth of intentional communities with mentorship, seed funding and network building.
Hakhel operates in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, which works to strengthen Jewish life in the Diaspora and connection to Israel. While the world is transitioning from hierarchical and centralist structures to networks and shared economies, Hakhel is on the forefront of implementing this spirit of innovation in Jewish life.
