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.

Meet the Schusterman Fellows: Hindy Poupko

My Jewish identify is the reason why I work in this field. I imagine that if I didn't identify Jewishly, I would likely have ended up working in politics. My leadership style however is informed by my personality and upbringing, not my "Jewish identity" per se. I don't stop myself in middle of the day and say, "what would Moses do?" I am much more likely to say, "what would my father do?"
