Hacking to Create Community Change in Israel and the Bay Area on July 19-20, 2013 On July 19-20, "Hasadna" (the Public Knowledge Workshop of Israel) and the Schusterman Philanthropic Network will launch "Friday Night Hack." This new initiative will take a collaborative, interactive and international approach to combining open-source, open-data, networks of savvy coders and inspiring challenges to leverage the power of technology for positive change in the Jewish community and Israel.
Developers, designers and other creative individuals who have a passion for using technology to address pressing social challenges will hack together simultaneously in Tel Aviv and Silicon Valley on two main channels, one focused on Israeli municipalities and one on strengthening the global Jewish community.
We are giving everyone the opportunity to use their specialized skills and expertise to create and improve tech-based tools that will benefit Israel and Jewish communities around the globe.
Among our goals at the "Friday Night Hack" is to create and strengthen the bonds within and between the hacking communities of Israel and Silicon Valley, while providing hackers with new ways to devote their time and talent to fostering positive change.
We will start the event with an inspiring Shabbat dinner and then hack away.
The bay area hackathon will be hosted by our local community partner, the innovation committee of San Francisco Jewish Federation.
