The Junction Annual
25th-27th May 2018
in Milan, Italy

Here is a video of how our event went:

Have you ever had that feeling that you are a part of something bigger? Part of a mechanism, or a network of some kind, a system, or a piece of “a whole” that you can’t really explain?

If that’s the case, then you’ve arrived to the right place! Junction Annual 2018 is a conference filled with workshops focusing on PLURALITY – about us being “more than one”, but all acting as one. Be ready to generate growth and receive growth!

We are looking for someone who might be you…

It’s pretty impossible to describe who we are actually looking for, but we know for a fact that we wish to gather Jews from all over Europe and the Globe that are:

  • Intrigued about their plural living and see opportunities that arise from it.
  • Driven by the fact that it’s awesome to be different and have diverse opinions.
  • Interested in connecting to a larger whole and a larger purpose.
  • Enthusiastic about the idea of creating a network of trustworthy partners with a long term commitment to one another.

If you look at the whole world and see it as one, ignoring its borders of all sorts (physical, cultural), then it’s you we are looking for.

If you are ready to learn a first hand tool on creating different conversations and take it with you to your friends, home and community.

If you wish to create change, have impact, look forward and add a new way of looking towards the Jewish world and the world around you, then we are pretty sure we are a match-made in Heaven!

Don’t you love win-win situations?

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” George Bernard Shaw

They say two brains are more powerful than one brain, and we are sure that’s true.

But what would you say about 150+ brains that see the world in similar manners, all having similar values, all striving for positive change?

Being in that room with all those brains and match you with ones that are like-minded … That’s the “magic” that we think you will get.

“What do you expect of me?”, you might be wondering right now.

Well, the short answer would be “to get involved” and follow your finest ideas and transform them into reality with the help of this community, gathering, conference – call it however you’d like.

We believe that if each of us brings their own knowledge, assets and wild ideas to the table, the impact we are going to have will be huge and more importantly, fast!

So what do we want from you? We simply want you to be enthusiastic about the world you live in and feel the need we also feel: to make it a better place.

Why is all this happening?

We believe that change, generally, is a constant – especially in the modern Jewish world.

Change just never comes to an end! If it does, that’s a sign of defeat itself.

That’s why we strongly believe it’s our mission to constantly create the needed change starting around ourselves, our communities, our regions and our whole world.

Got your expectations high enough already?

Expect meeting like-minded people from around the world and creating great new friendships.

Expect getting inspired by our speakers, but also by the others attendees.

Expect three full days of opportunities you couldn’t have thought of.

Expect content that’s going to constantly challenge your mind.

Got your expectations up? Ready to get involved? Do you think you can inspire and offer growth to those around? Are you ready to be challenged?

If so, then, what are you still waiting for?
