Ever wanted to better understand your Jewish stakeholders? Have a burning question about Jewish culture or community, but never had a safe space or someone with lived experience to ask? This session will dive into it all, giving you a deeper capacity to understand and connect with your Jewish stakeholders.

Over the course of the webinar and informed by history, academia and deep lived and community experience, Joel will discuss the following:

  • key Jewish events and experiences that underpin the worldview of many Jewish stakeholders
  • common misconceptions about what anti-Jewish bias is and is not
  • key examples, case studies and pitfalls to avoid
  • a safe, comfortable space to ask 'messy' questions about all things Jewish culture, history, text and tradition that will help you connect and empathise more deeply with your Jewish stakeholders!

Joel Lazar was Head of Operations at The Man Cave, an organisation that develops the emotional intelligence and mental health of boys to enable them to become healthy and respectful young men. Joel has extensive experience working across the full spectrum of Australian Jewish community life - from being a cantor in his local synagogue, delivering sermons on Jewish text and values, undertaking various traditional Jewish text study programs, designing and running Jewish youth leadership programs, and working at the intersection of social justice and Judaism. His commitment to addressing the impacts of our rapidly changing climate, culminated in his joining the Jewish Climate Network as its inaugural CEO in 2020. Through JCN, Joel is driven to unlock the strengths, networks and creativity of the Jewish community, to unlock its full climate leadership potential.

What's a Webinar?

A Webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our Webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the Webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything - we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why Webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions
Our Webinars include a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the Webinar.

You don't need an IT degree
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
