Our Core Values: BUILT to Last

Breaking the Mold. Creative use of technology and film can bring about cutting edge ideas.

Uncompromising. Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Inclusion. We focus on what unites, rather than divides, us.

Leadership. Entrepreneurial leaders are the drivers of change. We create passionate and empowered Jewish leaders.

Teamwork. We strive to look for the greatness in people and build on everyone’s best qualities.

Our core values guide our work, inspire our staff, and serve as the foundation of behaviors that drive us to fulfill our mission.
