RENEW International

To ensure young adults get the guidance and support needed to make critical decisions in life, RENEW International, a Roman Catholic Ministry organization incorporated under the Archdiocese of Newark, has created the Theology-On-Tap program.

The Theology-On-Tap program is a 4 week speaker conversation series that brings spirituality into a fun and informal setting outside of church. During this time, young adults can gather in places like a restaurant, coffee house, even at a bar to address similar challenges they are facing, and to obtain guidance and support from the group. This form of communion and faith discovery created by RENEW International has been so popular that it has spread across the country and beyond.

If you are interested in learning more about this youth program, give your local RENEW International office a call!

Amos Tamam

I believe we can all be successful if we put trust in our ability to succeed. Amos Tamam did just that and more, he revolutionized the entire taxi industry by mobilizing the credit card payment systems and bringing the convenience of credit cards into taxis.

Amos Tamam was an immigrant engineer from Israel who wanted more than just servicing taxis. He observed the challenges faced by the taxi industry and took action to make life better, for both himself and everyone else. His company, Verifone Transportation Systems, not only enabled taxi companies to increase sales, by accepting an additional form of payment, but also indirectly diminished fraud and crime by eliminating the use of cash.

Innovations like this that has pervasive benefits should be celebrated; do you have inspirational stories like Amos Tamam that your would like to share? Let us know!
