NRE: DC Hosts Mensch Madness
Mensch Madness, hosted by NRE: DC AZA and Hillel at the University of Maryland on the afternoon of Sunday, March 22nd, provided over 50 Alephs with intimate educational experiences with mensches from across the spectrum of community leadership. Attendees chose from 5 leadership tracks, including an interactive workshop with a Maryland state legislator and a tour of UMD’s student tech incubator, all of which provided valuable lessons on how to be a positive change-maker in one’s community.
Participants also got to hear from Devin Schain, a prominent entrepreneur and Jewish philanthropist in Greater Washington. When not engaging in leadership workshops and sessions, attendees got a taste of Jewish life on a premier college campus with a tour of UMD’s campus and a March Madness watch party held in the Hillel building. Despite metrics nationwide indicating a decrease in engagement of Jewish boys in Jewish communal life, Mensch Madness shows that Greater Washington will continue to have young mensches ready to lead the Jewish community forward.
