About the Event

In an era when we can choose our own identities, why might we choose to identify as Jews? Zack Bodner addresses this question and others, such as why we should support Israel, as he shifts from asking, “Why be Jewish?” to “Why do Jewish?” After laying out a compelling answer, he goes on to explain what Jewish Peoplehood is and why he believes we are in the throes of an evolution to the next era: Jewish Peoplehood 4.0. He provides a road map for how to do Jewish in the 21st century including proposing “the next big Jewish idea,” a creative framework for doing Jewish based on an acronym from the Yiddish word TACHLIS, which means “getting down to brass tacks.”

Zack Bodner is a seeker, writer, storyteller, community organizer, and above all else, a doer. He has been the CEO of the Oshman Family JCC for nearly 9 years. Before that, Zack worked for 14 years at AIPAC. Zack holds an MA in Philosophy of Religion and Theology from Claremont Graduate University and a BA from Yale, where he played varsity soccer. Zack is an accomplished speaker, including as a MOTH storyteller and TEDx presenter. He writes regularly for publications including The Forward, Times of Israel and The J Weekly. He was in the Executive Leadership Seminar at The Aspen Institute and is on the Advisory Board of the Taube Center for Jewish Studies at Stanford University.
