Letter From Our CEO
I’m delighted to present this 2019 Annual Report on our incredible year of achievement. But none of our accomplishments – such as 5 million minutes watched on our Unpacked YouTube channel or 2,200 monthly educators visits to our Unpacked for Educators website – would have been possible without your involvement. Your support has enabled us to grow our work, deepen our impact and extend our reach to Jewish educators and Jewish students.
I’m also thrilled to share the news with you that we’ve officially changed our name from Jerusalem U to OpenDor Media to better reflect our vision today and our mission to throw open the doors of Jewish and Israeli history and culture to this generation. Dor also means ‘generation’ in Hebrew – underscoring our belief that education is a generational phenomenon, passed on through historical narrative from parent to child and from teacher to student.
We are proud of our Jewish heritage and identity and excited to embrace our role in helping to ensure the continuity of future generations through high quality films and educational content.
We hope that OpenDor Media will embolden our sense of purpose and serve as a rallying call to our many donors and supporters who stand shoulder to shoulder with us on our mission.
I’m honored to have you with us on the next stage of our incredible journey.
