On Sunday, Nishmah's high school group, Banot Buddies used the house to hold a board meeting, which was kicked off with a conversation with Next Dor Program Director Yoni Sarason, who spoke to the group about starting an organization, getting people involved and communication strategies.
Following this, renowned author, speaker, and entrepreneur, Sam Silverstein spoke to around the dining room table to a group of young adults about the five essential accountabilities of success. Drawing heavily from his recent book, "No More Excuses", Sam talked about seeing accountability in a proactive sense, instead of as a consequence.
A number of those in attendance were employed in the Jewish communal service field including YPD's Lee'at Bachar, who believed Sams', "Five Accountability's were easy to remember and resonated with me specifically as a Jewish Professional. His ideas and extensive research with successful individuals, were posed in such a way that made it easy to apply to everyday situations and consider the way I view my relationships and expectations for myself and those around me."
