Character Day in New York Jewish Voice


Building on the global success and momentum of Character Day 2015, in which hundreds of thousands participated and viewed the films The Making of a Mensch and The Adaptable Mind, Emmy-nominated filmmaker Tiffany Shlain’s nonprofit Let it Ripple this year will broaden the initiative’s reach that uses film and discussion materials to create a global conversation about the importance of character-building in today’s 24/7 world—developing strengths like creativity, humility, grit, courage, compassion and empathy.

Thousands of groups have already signed up to participate in Character Day 2016, set for September 22. Let It Ripple is encouraging groups (schools, organizations, companies, camps, congregations, JCCs, museums, and communities of any size) to sign up—the first 10,000 groups to sign up will receive a free printed discussion package.
