Global changemakers will join up to one thousand concerned citizens for the inaugural One-to-One Global Forum at The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, from 1:00 p.m. on June 20, 2016 to 1:00 a.m., June 21.
It will be the first-ever marathon forum of its kind hosted at the institution, exploring the critical issue of individual action and responsibility in effecting social good.
Headliners at the inaugural Global Forum include former NYC mayor David Dinkins, UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Malaria, Ray Chambers, MIT neuroscientist Dr. Ed Boyden, media impresario Randi Zuckerberg, the founder of charity:water, Scott Harrison, Justin Rockefeller, Abigail Disney and more than 75 others.
Co-sponsored by The Global Education & Leadership Foundation, Harper Collins, the New York University Bronfman Center and the United Nations Foundation, One-to-One’s premise was inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, who is often referred to as the most influential rabbi in modern history.
The intimate live experience was complemented by a continuous online broadcast and scheduled viewings in more than 70 countries.
Millions of people around the world were first introduced to the Rebbe through the New York Times best-selling biography REBBE, written by Joseph Telushkin (Harper, 2014). Many of the speakers will be drawing from the Rebbe’s teachings, speaking about how theses ideas have informed their own personal or public lives. Telushkin himself, the author of more than 20 books including Jewish Literacy, will speak past midnight.
