The concept, ambitious; six speakers interpreting how one moment, one decision, one person can unleash a movement with the power to transform our world.
And yet, never has this concept of “The Power of One” been truer than with JEDx, itself. In just one evening, a larger picture of individual greatness and collective might began to take form. People of all ages, organizations of varying missions — all gathered under one roof because of their unifying belief in the potential and value Judaism offers.
