I’m pleased to have been invited to participate on a panel at an Aug. 31 conference in Jerusalem on “Web 2.0” for Israeli and Jewish non-profits. Find information about the event here. The conference’s star attraction is Web-preneur Jeff Pulver, a frequent visitor to Israel. His topic is “New Trends in Social Media in the post-Facebook Era.”
I’ll be part of a panel discussing the topic, “What I learned from using social media to promote my non-profit.” My focus will be on the video strategy we have pursued, which includes placing Hartman Institute videos in a wide range of locations, both on our site and off. A few weeks ago, I crowed in this space about how our videos had been viewed 10,000 times. Now, I can tell you they are at 20,000. I’ll review my comments on this site after the conference, in case you can’t get to it.
Others on the panel include Caryn Green, director of Crossroads, which helps at-risk Anglo youth in Jerusalem, award winning blogger and cartoonist, Yaakov “Dry Bones” Kirschen, eJewishPhilanthropy.com founder and conceptualizer, Dan Brown, and Aharon Horwitz, co-founder and director of PresenTense Group.
