ELI Talks and My Jewish Learning, with Sharon Weiss-Greenberg
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question: How many recordings has ELI Talks done so far?
ELI Talks began in 2012 at the North American Jewish Day School Conference as a production of The AVI CHAI Foundation. It produces short video talks modeled on the popular TED Talks and is a platform for inspired Jewish ideas, including videos, Moth-style short stories of today’s Jews, podcasts, curricula and source sheets, and live events. ELI Talks became a part of My Jewish Learning in 2019.

She is the former Director of Development and Communications at ELI Talks and former Executive Director of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA).
