Why are there so many Jewish Nobel Prize winners? Much of both scientific and Jewish practices follow proven recipes for success, and both progress through enlightened creativity. This session will expose you to the nuts and bolts of the creative process, through first hand experiences of Dr. Ken Shiovitz. You will gain insights into your own creative potential and become aware of some of the guiding principles of creative accomplishment.
