During this year's virtual DOROT Jewish Summer Teen Internship Program, Oliver and Ted worked together to create a documentary film about Ted's life and decades of experience as a Jewish communal professional. You can watch the documentary HERE.

"It's an energizing experience to connect to somebody who's smart, young, idealistic," Ted reflected. When asked what he learned from the experience, Oliver said, "It's important to get out there and be impactful to your community in a positive way."
