Year Course Year Course’s First Social Entrepreneurship Hackathon

By Young Judaea

This January over a period of 10 weeks, the Yama (Tel Aviv based group) of Young Judaea Year Course participated in the very first social entrepreneurship hackathon! The topic of this years’ hackathon was how to make Tel Aviv a more accessible city for all.

After a full seminar day consisting of breakout groups, dialogue circles, and workshops, the group split up into teams. Each team was then tasked with creating a project proposal that aims to address a specific social issue.

Before getting started, the groups took to the streets to interview Tel Avivians, and find out what they loved about living in the city and what was a struggle for them. Groups received expert guidance and support from partners like Zevel Rebel, Aviv for Holocaust Survivors,  and Kasriel Kaye of the Michael Levin Base to talk about being the challenges of being a lone soldier.
