Impact

Reboot envisions powerful creative arts and cultural experiences – drawn from the rich treasures of Judaism – transforming, inspiring and rekindling Jewish connections and meaning in our day-to-day lives.

As a premier R&D platform in the Jewish world, Reboot touches lives by engaging the most talented community of creatives to design, produce and share with the world enticing, imaginative, memorable and experiential projects and programs that are relevant for the 21st century. These projects include: Saturday Night Seder, DAWN, Higher Holidays, Give Light, Reboot Ideas Series, Silver Screen Studios, Reboot Podcasts and more!

Reboot is a real reinvention of what we think of as Jewish culture.
Benj Pasek (Oscar, Grammy, Tony, and Golden Globe Award-winning songwriter)

Over the last five years:

  • More than 4 million have participated in our digital programs
  • 1,250 organizations have partnered with Reboot, inspiring more than 3,500 events and engaging more than 750,000 people
  • More than 60,000 have made contributions of content to these projects

Prior to Reboot my spirituality was part of my shadow self, I knew it was there but I didn’t quite know what to do with it. Reboot not only reconnected me to my faith, but fosters a community of like-minded Jews re-imagining our relationship to creativity, tradition, ritual, and bagels.
