Jewish Impact Investing Summit 2020
Monday, May 18, 2020 from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
JLens is organizing the second Jewish Impact Investing Summit in New York City on May 18, 2020. The event will be hosted by UJA-Federation of New York. There has never been a more important time for the Jewish community to actively participate and influence the growing responsible investing and business movements. Aligning investment capital with communal values and priorities has become a necessity.

JLens' first Summit convened 15 partners, 43 speakers, and 300 attendees representing 82 Jewish organizations to explore the many reasons “why” the Jewish community should engage in impact investing. This second Summit will transition from the “why” to the “how” of impact investing, uniquely framed for the Jewish community. Join stewards of Jewish communal capital to learn through case studies and interactive workshops.
Space is limited.
