Not even a snow storm could keep away the 500 who participated in Jumans: In Real Life! It was bigger, smarter and even more fun than ever and a testament to the dynamic presenters, volunteers and attendees who made the evening the success that it was. Check out what happened at the Bay Adelaide Centre on January 18th, 2020!
The Jumans Pre-Event was an evening for the 2018 and 2019 Jumans Cohorts to come together and meet face-to-face.. before the main event, JUMANS: IRL on January 18th, 2020! The anticipation for JUMANS: IRL grew as the Jumans got their creative juices flowing, crowd-sourcing panel ideas for IRL, lending personal artistic touches to the proposed branding, posing for headshots, and testing out a Hot Take-off! Thank you to every person who was in the room, plus the Jumans and panelists who could not join us.

The final Gamechangers of 2019 was truly an exceptional evening. The honest, relevant discussion led by Senator Linda Frum and Rabbi Rafi Lipner left those in attendance feeling inspired and excited. Senator Frum's message of courage, action and standing up for the right thing, even when it is difficult, resonated deeply.
Additionally, we were honoured to be joined by our first two Gamechangers of 2019, Bruce Leboff and Barry Cracower. We want to extend our deepest appreciation to Senator Frum for opening her home to The House and hosting us so warmly.
OWN IT was the first partner program between The House and UJA Genesis, and it was an outstanding success! The message delivered by Rabbi Rafi and Tamara Rebick inspired us all to OWN today and set intentions to live the upcoming year in an "audaciously authentic" way.
We are excited to strengthen the bond that our facilitators built between habits that will help us achieve our big-picture goals and the Jewish values which help anchor our lives.
Special thanks to our amazing committee: Adam Goldberg, Shira Fenyes, Max & Jessica Koven, Talia Sudai & Mika Unterman
