PresenTense Fellows at Work
We at PresenTense believe that social involvement is the key to helping the Jewish community grow stronger and more vibrant. The Community Entrepreneur Partnership trains local Jewish social entrepreneurs, building a web of individuals in that community who are committed to innovation and the success of the Jewish People.
Highlighted here are the fellows from our CJP/PresenTense Fellowship in Boston and Jerusalem Winter Fellowship 2010.

The Community Entrepreneur Partnership builds ventures that foster a local Jewish community of innovation. The Jerusalem Winter Fellowship trained nine innovative and passionate community leaders who have the qualities necessary to promote changes in Israeli society and the broader Jewish community.
