The PDX Community Hackathon is centered on an energizing event that convenes a diverse array of local stakeholders to generate, prototype, and pitch solutions to a shared challenge.  The challenge our community Hackathon is addressing is how to create sustained engagement of young Jewish adults throughout the greater Portland area.  The methodology encourages collaboration and breaks down barriers, while fostering a creative and experimental environment.   At our Hackathon, the participants don’t just talk about solutions: they build them, in cross-functional teams that represent a variety of perspectives.  The result is a more connected community whose members design the programs and services they wish to see.  Team proposals will be voted on by a panel of judges and receive funding for implementation.  

You can also join us Friday night for a special Shabbat dinner to kick off the weekend! It's a chance to network with other young adults in the community and to start the fun!
