Where to begin? What a ride its been. You’ve been holding your breath, craving some good ole Delicious DIRT while some of us were in Vegas at TribeFest. I mean, you’re just simply at the edge of your computers, iPhones, iPads, iPods, Facebooks, Twitter accounts literally counting the hours, even minutes until we post right? Good news…
Elevate Your Presence is here to satiate your every whim. So, don’t fret, the lack of posts last week means we’ve been busy… and it’s been juicy…not only for us, but also for you because you’re gonna get the inside flavor. Fasten your seat belts ladies and gents…we’re taking off…
Delicious DIRT Editor-In-Chief‘s Elevated TribeFest experience is coming soon; for now some basics below
Elevate Your Presence trekked to Vegas this past week/ weekend for the first ever TribeFest. We decided to be open to anything. Man, not knowing what to expect, (a trip with tons of Jews could have gone a lot of ways), but this conference – 1290 young Jews from around the globe, wonderful leaders, speakers, musicians, comedians and about one hundred different organizations/ companies- truly blew us away.
MBK literally got up close and personal with so many magical people. And that is what it’s all about. Connecting. Real. Raw. True. Nothing better. Full report soon.
Grateful to have connected with:
- The Magical Miri Ben Ari – The Hip Hop Violinist
- Phenom founder of Idealist.org – Ami Dar
- The one and only brilliant + captivating beyond words -Rabbi Yonah
- Hot performer Vanessa Hidary aka Hebrew Mamita
- Y-Love, Mayim Bialik, White House’s Sonal Shah, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Punk Jews, Heeb Magazine Editor in Chief, beautiful hilarious Erin Hershberg, and so many more in our evolving list.
This is only the beginning of these relationships… Building, growing, inspiring, changing, believing, learning, connecting, working together and uniting. Hands on. For each one of us, this experience means something different. And for me, that’s the true beauty of it all.
TribeFest could have been complete with champagne snowballs and all… In fact, I’m sure some made romantic connections within the Tribe and that’s fab! For me, this conference was all about connecting with truly monumental people, insanely wonderful organizations/ companies and learning about + connecting w/ Judaism in deeper ways. And that it was! This is just the tip… of the iceberg people. Heads out of gutter…
- For now, you can get a quick glimpse & watch Shemspeed’s video on TribeFest here. You Tube the fest for more if you just can’t wait for our videos.. soon to post. You’ll get chills watching Miri. AMAZING.
