Learn About Our Work

Jewish lives today are born of inspiration, not obligation. So how do we inspire? By empowering young Jews to engage in meaningful Jewish experiences, build inclusive Jewish communities, connect to the State of Israel and repair the world.

We are invested in ensuring a bright future for a diverse, dynamic, inclusive Jewish people deeply connected to Israel and committed to making the world a better place.

To us, “Jewish” is neither a static nor insular term. While a set of core values underpins Jewish traditions, the Jewish community is a rich and constantly expanding tapestry of experiences, identities and ideas.

We see our work as part of a virtuous cycle of young Jewish engagement that fosters global connectedness, promotes a culture of service, connects young people with Israel and welcomes all who seek to lead actively Jewish lives.

The first step, and the hardest, was coming out to myself.

The wheels of the South African Jewish community go 'round and 'round…

This five-star railway hotel bucket-list experience winds itself from the 5000-meter-high plateau on which gold was found and Johannesburg founded, through the quiet, slowly transforming deserts of the Karoo down to the lush Mediterranean winelands at Cape Town’s gorgeous mountain and sea level. This is where we found ourselves, passengers clippity-clopping amongst 60 other young Jewish change agents, asking the one most important question—how can I help and how can we contribute?

TALMA: A Life-Changing Opportunity for Educators Passionate About Israel

Why commit to an entire summer of volunteer teaching—unpaid? Why, after a school year of working hard for too little pay, would you sign up to teach for free?

Rather than further draining my energy, participating in this program renewed it.
