I am seeing Project Kesher build our next generation of Jewish leaders ─

and I feel very positive about our future.

Next Generation

  • Project Kesher's Next Generation program engages recent Jewish women college graduates to encourage them to stay involved in Jewish communal life.  They study, volunteer, and engage in social activism together. 
  • The program helps build a much-needed new leadership cadre in the fragile Jewish communities in the region.  The young women are trained to work collaboratively with other organizations and raise funds locally for their programs, keeping the model cost effective.

"I see the changes in the women I work with who are in their teens through 20's participating in our joint program with Hillel on college campuses, in our youth groups, in our Mother/Daughter Retreats...they gain confidence, Jewish knowledge and a deep desire to make the world a better place.  I am seeing Project Kesher build our next generation of Jewish leaders and I feel very positive about our future."
