Greetings from Denver!
…well, almost. Â I’m writing this as I pack for tomorrow’s early morning flight to the Mile High city for the Jewish Federations of North America’s General Assembly (GA for short – #JFNAGA for the Twitter enabled). Â This annual uber-gathering of Jewish professionals from around the world creates a scene reminiscent of a three day long kiddush club – with your old camp buddies, school mates, and parents’ friends all there joining in on the fun. Â Below is a LIVE photo stream from my camera (and phone) of the GA. If you have pictures you want added, send me an email or Tweet.

On Monday night att 11pm mountain time, I will be leading a session called Rebound (#ReboundGA). Based on Silicon Valleyâ€™s FailCon events, ours will be a conversation with an outsider (Bruce Taragin, a bigshot venture capitalist), an insider (Scott Kaufman, the CEO of the Detroit Federation) and someone kinda in between (Nina Bruder, the head of Bikkurim, which is partially Federation-funded but which helps incubate new Jewish orgs) â€“ all will go over things they tried that failed, what they learned from it, and ways that they learned from those attempts in order to succeed going forward. Â If you are in Denver – please consider joining us.
