Michael Amsellem grew up in Strasbourg in a Jewish community that boasts a strong culture, history and values. After a scientific A-level, he went to Paris to study management, finance and entrepreneurship. During that time he traveled around the world, observing different Jewish communities. His commitment to the Jewish people and Israel is evident in several different ways: He has worked for the collaboration between French and Israeli parliamentarians, has organized conferences on Jewish philosophy and has also organized conferences on business ventures between France and Israel. Since he cares deeply about the Jewish-Israel cause, he participated in the Bronfman-Brandeis Competition in Jewish Identity, which led him to read about Jewish history, leaders and psychology. Michael is also a member of Limmud, Kol Dor and Israel Connect and he co-chaired Limmud Day France 2010. On the professional level, he is launching a web-based software program called Olamee. This tool will provide a social network and a visualization of events on a map. He is also working on a few other projects.
