Inspiring Young Generations to Embrace Jewish life and to Ensure a Jewish Future

For young generations, identifying as a Jew is a choice. Over the last decade, UJA has invested in an array of compelling Jewish Identity programs designed to capture the hearts, minds and free-time of youth and young adults. Their impact has been impressive with consistently increasing numbers participating in Jewish day and overnight camps, Israel Experience programs, supplementary Jewish schools, Hillels and PJ Library.

UJA will capitalize on this success by doing three critical things: scaling up the most successful initiatives to reach the full potential cohort of young Jews; linking these programs to each other so that Jewish involvement becomes sustained rather than episodic; and continuing to develop innovative new programs that reach new markets of young Jews.
