PresenTense – a community of innovators, entrepreneurs, leaders, and educators from around the world, investing their ideas and energy to revitalize the established Jewish community – is ready to introduce their 2011 Global Summer Institute Fellows. These 16 social entrepreneurs will launch their ventures at a ceremony in Jerusalem, sharing their visions for the transformation of the Jewish community, Israel, and the world, today, July 28, at noon (EST).
One of the fellows is DC-area resident Rachel Brody. She came to DC in 2007 with the Teach for America program. She has since helped found and worked for the KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) DC: Promise Academy, in various roles. Her project at PresenTense aims to ensure equality in educational opportunity and help advocate for people with intellectual disabilities.
