A group of 120 young Jewish innovators from 28 countries around the world gathered in Jerusalem on Sunday night for an international conference of future leaders. The third annual 'Return on Investment' Summit, which is funded by the American Jewish philanthropist Lynn Schusterman, includes a day of work with Ethiopian immigrants at the Absorption Center in the Jerusalem suburb of Mevasseret Zion, and a motley of sessions affording participants the opportunity to network and interact. "The link between the participants is that they are seeking to change the world and to contribute to a dynamic future for the Jewish people," Schusterman said.
