No, I’m not struggling with commitment or marriage – instead I am challenged by how to get Jewish young adults excited about participating in Open דור Door. For me, engagement brings to mind how to get young people involved in the Jewish community through participation in social programming and volunteering.
In these first stages of my training as a social entrepreneur, I have been reminded many times that I need to come up with a “hook” in order to cultivate interest for my idea. What I am concerned with moving forward is the need for regular participation and commitment to Open דור Door.
Learning how to express the value of my project to potential consumers, and ensure regular participation, has been a process that I have enjoyed at PresenTense. Finding participants to engage in Open דור Door in order to generate lasting relationships to ensure a strengthened connection to our Jewish past will continue to challenge my skills as a social entrepreneur.
