WATCH: Venture Creative Contest Online Award Ceremony

April 13, 2020

On Sunday March 8th, we were pleased to host our Venture Creative Contest Award Ceremony to celebrate the winners of the first round of the Contest. Our keynote speakers included acclaimed human rights advocate Natan Sharansky and US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Elan Carr, who discussed the importance of younger generations finding creative ways to combat anti-Semitism.  Mr. Sharansky and Mr. Carr also discussed the rise of anti-Semitism surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

We are proud to announce that over 30,000 people watched the online event after the original event at the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia was canceled due to coronavirus concerns.
