About CERprize

Our mission

A new generation of young entrepreneurs in the field of internet and digital start-ups is growing around the world, leading the way in countless successful applications which have enormous potential. However while those motivated solely by financial gain may reap their own rewards, those with a more altruistic motivation are less often recognised. We want to cultivate a generation of talented and selfless entrepreneurs.

 

Promoting ‘Tikkun Olam’ is about contributing to global social harmony, whether the application enhances areas of business, education, entertainment, travel, social or leisure.

The Conference of European Rabbis (CER) is the primary rabbinical alliance in Europe uniting 700 mainstream synagogue communities in Europe and was founded in 1956 to revive destroyed European Jewish communities by British Chief Rabbi Sir Israel Brodie supported by the Chief Rabbis of France, Jacob Kaplan, Amsterdam, Aharon Schuster and the British Sephardic spiritual leader, Hacham Gaon. The first conference took place in 1957 in Amsterdam.
