The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and Unistream entered into a partnership to close socioeconomic gaps and make the start-up dream a reality for all Israeli youth.

Jerusalem Post Group CEO Ronit Hasin-Hochman participated in this year’s competition as a judge and said: "Brilliant youth from Acre, Or Yehuda, Netanya, Sakhnin and Safed presented their initiatives in different fields.

"The presentations were all at a high level and some were done in fluent English. They all deserve our admiration," Hasin-Hochman said.
