About this video

What is an 8th generation Rabbi doing at BIF? As President of The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, Kula believes we need to innovate religion. Why? Because, we are living in a moment of transition; a moment of re-imagining what it means to be human. Technology is going to be the hardware of humanity, but how it is used will be based on the software of humanity. Religious leadership has nothing to contribute now but to bring the consciousness of morality to the conversations around innovation and design.


An internationally sought–after speaker, Rabbi Irwin Kula has inspired people worldwide by using Jewish wisdom to speak to all aspects of modern life and relationships. An engaged and thoughtful trader in the global marketplace of ideas, he led a Passover Seder in Bhutan; consulted with government officials in Rwanda; helped build cultural and interfaith bridges in Qatar; and met with leaders as diverse as the Dalai Lama and Queen Noor to discuss compassionate leadership in the 21st century. Across the U.S., he works constantly with religious, business and community leaders, corporate and family foundations, and religious and philanthropic institutions to promote leadership development and institutional change.
